Here are some of the links and resources that I promised during this week's episode. This link, from the New York Public Library, was embedded in a Twitter chain by @kawaiiedgelord who made a really good point. Being in chains and getting the word out are all fine and good, but this Twitter user wanted to share some resources, especially for young people. That link is below.
This is another post that I found and I'd like to share it with you. It is a website chock full of places to donate, resources to learn about, and ways to help. Please check it out, especially if you want to act, but don't really know where to start.
Also, utilize social media! Follow #blacklivesmatter on Twitter, and I'm sure you can find similar hashtags and posts on Facebook and Instagram.
If you find ANYTHING we can add to this list, please contact me and I will post additional blogs. You can find me on Twitter @brookreadingpod, or email me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, here are the websites I used for the biographical information on Shirley Chisholm, as well as a stunning image of the real woman next to Uzo Aduba from Mrs. America
