Addressing Racism

George Floyd Memorial

Philadelphia FIGHT has collected materials on racism in America and how to address it that we hope readers will find useful.  So far, these materials include a Google Doc,  Justice in June that enables you to undertake a self- paced learning program where you choose how much time you have and follow this plan for 30 days;  a New York Times article where they asked writers to share books that had deepened their understanding of race, resulting in a  compilation of over 50 books novels, histories, sociological studies, plays, memoirs and literary criticism.:  “Every work of American literature  is about race.  Writers on How We Got Here” with links to each book.  We will be adding more training materials in the next few weeks.
