I have a huge A Collection Of Useful Posts, Articles & Videos On Race & Racism – Help Me Find More list, which also includes many “sub” Best lists. It’s also pretty unwieldy for readers/users.
Many of the resources on that list are there using Storify, a tool that will be going off-line soon. So, I’m using that change as an opportunity to cull and re-organized those links over the next few months into a series of “New & Revised” Best lists.
This is the first one:
