As regular readers know, I’ve been revising and updating the forty-five separate “Best” lists I have related to race and racism, and you can see them all here.
All those lists contain resources that I have used or are using in my classes.
However, there are a lot of materials that I have not yet incorporated in my teaching, but anticipate doing so sometime in the future.
That’s what this list contains.
As I use each one, I’ll move them over the appropriate lists and, of course, I’ll continually be adding things here, too:
