The LYDN initiative has curated a list of resources and continues to add books, podcasts, lectures and other media that explore racism and white supremacy in America’s history and culture.
Some of the featured resources include:
- Seeing White – Just what is going on with white people? (series)
Ibram X. Kendi, the anti-racist activist and author of “Stamped From the Beginning,” is a featured historian on this series.
- 28 Movies to Watch During Black History Month That Aren’t About Black Trauma
These are movies about Black joy. It’s not all about trauma. How can we who are white expand our repertoire for what is ‘normal’ and enjoyable?
- Who Gets to Be Afraid in America – Ibram X. Kendi, The Atlantic
And sometimes we do need to learn more about the racism-induced trauma
- Georgia Museum of Art – Emma Amos: Color Odyssey
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Emma Amos (1937 – 2020) was a distinguished painter and printmaker. She is best known for her bold and colorful mixed-media paintings that create visual tapestries in which she examines the intersection of race, class, gender and privilege in both the art world and society at large.
