Resources For Allies

Hello, this is a resource list I put together for white allies. This was a really basic list I made for someone a few weeks ago, but I figure I can upload it here in case others find it helpful!

I’d recommend starting with the Youtube videos first before moving onto the articles. The first two articles are very basic ones and should be read with a critical eye and grain of salt. Definitely engage with the Combahee River Collective Statement as a primary document (and a crucial one!) but it’ll take a bit more time than the other articles to parse through.

Otherwise, the books are very useful and I’m especially fond of White Tears/Brown Scars. Read whichever ones strike your fancy or jump between them/chapters!

The movies/documentaries are basic historical watches not specific to white allies, but just really good history lessons. I love James Baldwin and I Am Not Your Negro and would highly recommend.
