Black Lives Matter: Resources and Tools You Can Use To Take Action...



It's been a challenging week for most of us, especially for the Black community. I cried so many times out of frustration, anger, and hurt. It's time that we put these emotions into action. I am longing for the true liberation of Black lives. I am tired.


A friend of mine/amazing Ph.D. scholar, put together a list of resources for non-Black and Black people in response to what has been going on. If you are not a protester, that's okay. There are other ways that you can take action. We need you!
