How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

Take the Justice In June challenge inspired by the events of May 2020 for people who want to be better allies. The challenge offers three learning plans for anyone hoping to spend a month taking a step to “becoming an active ally to the black community.” Choose how much time you have per day — 10, 25 or 45 minutes — and the learning plan tells you what books to read and which media to consume.
