If you’ve been brought here by our podcast or you simply came across this blog post, you’re taking the next step in this movement which is to be educated! As mentioned in the episode we would like share the excellent resources that have been put out by various creatives in this post and we would like you to take advantage of this by utilising these resources and sharing them within your circles.
This isn’t just the fight of the black community. As the brown community, we should stand united with them.
#1 Films & Documentaries
#2 Resources for Parents
Below is a selection of books by Jane Mount (https://www.instagram.com/jane_mount/) that can be used to aid parents when teaching their kids about racism.
#5 Letters in your language
A fantastic initiative created by ‘Letters for Black Lives’ , you can share these letters to educate people around you, especially brown relatives who may not have thought about things in this way before or believe in the internalised beliefs they have due to many years of colonisation. Be kind to them and help them understand. You can find letters that have been translated in languages like ASL, Cantonese, Mandarin, English, French, Japanese, Khmer, Portuguese, Spanish, Taiwanese Mandarin, Tamil and Telugu! Send out these letters!
