It has been nearly two months since the fateful murder of George Floyd, a murder which sparked a long awaited uprising. The protests that ensued shone a light on the global system of racism, the insidious nature of which has infiltrated all aspects of existence. As we move further away from the initial incident and protests, it is important to remember that the Black Lives Matter movement is exactly that - a movement. This is not a flash in the pan. The work is not finished. The structure of racism takes time and commitment to unlearn and unpick. To aid the ongoing conversation, we have put together a non exhaustive list of resources that help explain the multifaceted and systemic structure of racism.
