As Black Lives Matter protests continue across the globe, Calgary Unitarians Board of Trustees and Rev Debra have committed to bringing anti-racism education to our church community in the new church year. We wish to work for change in our city, province, and country. To achieve this goal, we must first educate ourselves. We have created an anti-racism resource list of articles, books, films, and actions, to help us all get started learning over the summer. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list — just a place to begin. We look forward to the discussions ahead of us.
Anti-Racism Reading and Resource List
If you haven’t yet read White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo, this is a highly recommended book – considered a necessary book for all people invested in societal change. It is currently on back order with Pages Books in Kensington but is expected to arrive by month’s end. Please consider placing your order with them to your support local independent bookstore and mention that you are with the Unitarians to receive a 10% discount. White Fragility is also available electronically in the Calgary Library.
Together, we can make a difference.
