The following covers books, TV and accounts that you can use to better undertand and learn about white supremecy, racial injustice, police brutality and more. These are all such important topics to be clued up on and to act against. I have been both devastated and inspired by the content that is filling up social media at the moment and I believe that everyone is ready to push for change – join the movement. #BLACKLIVESMATTER.

Read, watch, listen, follow and support to force the change. The power that people have when they come together is unbelievable. Everyone should be encouraged to educate themselves and do the research because we don’t learn about this in school, we have to take it into our own hands and help the people around us to do the same. Don’t ignore something because it makes you uncomfortable. Be a part of the solution.
