"The Good Ally" by Nova Reid
I invite you to be courageous and get comfortable with being uncomfortable, because any discomfort you feel is temporary and pales in comparison to what Black and Brown people often have to experience on a daily basis. Are you ready? Let’s get started; we have work to do.
The Good Ally is an urgent call-to-arms to become better allies against racism and provides a thoughtful approach, centering collective healing, to do so. Highly recommended!
"Me & White Supremacy" By Layla F Saad
Me and White Supremacy guides readers towards dismantling the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of colour, and in turn, help other white people do better, too. This book doesn't skirt around racism.
"Why I am no longer talking to white people
about race” By Reni Eddo-Lodge
Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race. Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism now. Powerful and informative.
"What White People Can Do Next" By Emma Dabiri
When it comes to racial justice, how do we transform demonstrations of support into real and meaningful change? How to we move beyond performative ally-ship? With intellectual rigour and razor-sharp wit, Emma Dabiri cuts through the haze of online discourse to offer clear advice. This book brings clarity and wisdom.

"When they call you a Terrorist” By Patrice Khan-Cullors
Patrisse Khan-Cullors and award-winning author and journalist Asha Bandele recount the personal story that led Patrisse to become a founder of Black Lives Matter, an organisation that seeks to end the culture that declares Black life disposable. Like the era-defining movement she helped create, this rallying cry demands that you do not look away. Powerful and inspiring.
"Minority Leader: How to Build Your Future & Make Real Change" By Stacey Abrams
Leadership is hard. Convincing others, and often yourself, that you possess the answers and are capable of world-affecting change requires confidence, insight, and sheer bravado. Minority Leader is the handbook for outsiders, written with the awareness of the experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional white male power; women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials ready to make a difference.
