Family resources for becoming anti-racist

Because, white friends, this is our work to do, here is a collection of my blogposts meant to provide parents and faith formation leaders with resources to begin or continue the work of becoming anti-racist. I am a curator of resources rather than a creator of resources, and if you have found others you recommend, please do let me know. It’s a very short list. I will add more as I write them.

Black History Month is for everyone

John Lewis walks with our children

A short family guide to supporting racial justice now

Talking with our children about race

Martin Luther King, Jr.

And just because I feel I need to hear this daily right now, here is poet and prophet Amanda Gorman on January 20, 2021:

Scripture tells us to envision

that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree

and no one shall make them afraid.

If we’re to live up to our own time,

then victory won’t lie in the blade.

But in all the bridges we’ve made,

that is the promise to glade,

the hill we climb.

From ” The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman
