Police Brutality Against African Americans and Anti-Racist Protest: Home

In the wake of the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the historic protests that have followed, we have put together this guide to share resources - books, films, articles, podcasts - on police brutality against African-Americans and anti-racist protest.  It is not an exhaustive resource on systemic racism in our country nor a full examination of the role white supremacy and privilege play in maintaining the system. We will continue to add resource and build on this guide and welcome your suggestions.
