PODCASTS

I'm a podcast addict, so here are a few of my favorites as far as providing insight and information around being POC and/or Black in America. (I'm also a big believer in storytelling as a way of understanding, so that shows in my choices).

Equal Justice Initiative

These are just a few organizations who are doing work on the ground. Join them, support them... but at the very least, explore the information they provide to expand your understanding - then take action in whatever way, at whatever level you are able. And share these (and other) resources on your own platforms!
