A few years ago some of you may have seen Gary Gray Jr’s Learning2 Talk:

One line from that talk continues to resonate with us:

“We need to start feeling comfortable about being uncomfortable.”

That talk connected with some of the wonderful and powerful ideas from the book “So you want to talk about race?” by  Ijeoma Oluo

The team at Eduro has been striving to have more conversations about race, equality, and bias. We know that too often those conversations are held only during specific moments: a one off workshop about inclusion, or during a single unit.

For Black History Month we wanted to curate a list of resources that can sustain the important conversation as it should be – throughout the year.

Resources

Here are some of the resources that we hope sustain important and necessary conversations. We’d love to hear your suggestions for other resources, so please leave us a comment below!
