Black Lives Matter Resources

By Rachel Lankester

Black Lives Matter resources and information to help everyone get educated on anti-Black racism.

Here are the many Black Lives Matter resources I’ve discovered so far in my quest to understand the movement and systemic racism better. My eyes have been opened about my white privilege and I’m determined to both educate myself and enable other people to learn more too as quickly as possible. This list is my attempt to help make that process easier. I will add to it as I find more resources.
