Learning About Race Together

Since the Black Lives Matter protests and the toppling of the Edward Colston statue in Bristol last week, various members of our community have told us they want to learn more about race equality, but don’t know where to start.

We thought it might be useful to put together a short list of resources intended to be used as a ‘starter pack’ as with a topic as huge as race it can feel a little overwhelming knowing where to begin. The important thing is to start somewhere and we hope the following is useful for that. 

Bristol and Race

To Read

We’ve seen a huge amount of anti-racism reading lists pop up over the last couple of weeks and for further reading including some fiction picks, we recommend this one in The Times from Olivette Otele, Professor of History of Slavery at Bristol University, and this one on Bustle that focuses on race in Britain. 

To Watch

To Listen 

We hope this is useful as a starting point – there is a much more extensive list of resources available over at the Beyond the Hashtag website, including petitions to sign, people to follow, and businesses and charities to support.
