Anti-Racism Resources

In light of the tragic murder of George Floyd last week, the team at Stand Up! have compiled a list of educational resources on the subject of anti-racism that we recommend. This is by no means an extensive list but just a few books, articles, podcasts and films in the plethora of resources available. It is up to all of us to take responsibility of our own education to help unpick deep-rooted racism and amplify black voices.
