Desmond Cole’s book The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power has come up on a number of reading lists this week, especially in those that are focussed on the issues in Canada. If you want to know more about the book or about media coverage of anti-Black racism in Canada, this interview with Cole and Téa Mutonji, another amazing author, is for you.

Organizations to Suppor

Finally, before I leave you, I want to say that this is only a tiny fraction of what’s out there. So much has been shared this week and in the past, there’s really no excuse for not engaging. So, whether you check out the above, or head to social media, Google, or a bookstore, I encourage you to take the time to find some Black voices to listen to and amplify today and in the future.
