Racism 101’s 'For Us, By Us' Offers Anti-Racism Media Database Filterable By Affinity Groups
This summer, as the country erupted into unrest brought on by George Floyd’s killing and a renewed dialogue about systemic racism, we hosted the virtual event series Unheard LA: A Deeper Listen. A trend in the discussion among our audience and participants was the burden people of color carry when they’re constantly asked for their opinion, resources or ideas on race-related issues. It’s exhausting.
We launched Racism 101 to give people as many resources as we could -- a conversation “starter kit” for those who wanted to learn how to guide more productive conversations; anti-racism resources to read, listen and watch; and a panel of 12 Angelenos willing to step up and answer those awkward, tough-to-ask questions folks have but didn’t want to ask their friends, or strangers. Now, those online tools are even more robust as we launch our For Us, By Us resource section. Read, listen, watch, dig in. You can filter our mini database by media type or by affinity group.
Next week, we’re rolling out answers to your Racism 101 questions on LAist. Stay tuned.
