    Seen this graphic several times on social media. Which all ones have you read? What are the best?

    I've read Warmth of Other Suns (about Great Migration) and it's 10/10. New Jim Crow is near the top of my list to read soon

    I’ve read Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race by Renni-Eddo Lodge and it was really good. She’s British and has a white mother so it was a unique perspective. I learned a lot and really enjoyed it.

    Alexander is good

    Getting Tough by Julilly Kohler-Hausmann and American Babylon by Robert Self are both good as well if you're looking for a more historical perspective.

    Down, Out, and Under Arrest is a good ground-level examination of just how fundamentally broken community policing is

    Demand for anti-racist literature is up. These black bookstore owners hope it lasts. Library and book sales data show how interest in anti-racist and social justice titles exploded after George Floyd’s death

    None of the books on the June 7 New York Times Best Sellers list, which was based on sales data from the week of Floyd’s death, were about race. Two weeks later, two-thirds were.

    That’s something I need to learn more about. All I really know is the rage against the machine reference (“they ain’t gonna send us campin like they did my man fred hampton”)
