How I used my #blackouttuesday (and will be using my time daily) to further educate myself and my students, friends and family on racism

Selecting and following Instagram accounts of powerful black women and men, institutions and organizations (examples: @dustinthierry; @hasnaelmaroudi; @dionneverwey; @sagidcarter; @kozwartepiet; @colorofchange; @the_blackarchives; @thewhiteshift)

Re-reading ‘Roofstaat’ and buying more books alike (ordered: Hallo witte mensen; Small Island, Woman, Race & Class; Girl, Woman, Other)

Selecting and following podcasts on anti-racism work (newly followed: Raising White Kids, with Jennifer Harvey; About Race; Angelique’s Voice Notes; Dipsaus)

Selecting books to buy next for my son where he doesn’t just see white boys or hero’s, but also black and female (put on my to-buy-next list: Black Girl Magic; Elke dag iemand anders; Ada Dapper, wetenschapper)

Adding movies and documentaries about race and racism to ‘My List’ on Netflix (added: 13th; Dear White People; See You Yesterday; American Son)

Selecting 10 articles to read in the upcoming 10 days (saved i.a.: Antiracist checklist for whitesPrinciples for White Affinity Study GroupsWhen Feminism Is White Supremacy in HeelsWhy White People Freak Out When They’re Called Out About Race)

You can’t expect things to change,
if you’re not willing to put in the work.
Get to work!
