Last week, George Floyd died while in police custody and while the country is demanding change, the nation is standing in solidarity with us.
The protests against police brutality have left many white people, including myself, eager to be better allies in the fight against racism. I would never preach something I don’t believe in and I would never encourage someone to do something I wouldn’t do. That’s why I want to share 5 books that I have purchased that will help me learn how to be a better ally to my black friends, family, and co-workers.
