The United States is currently engaged in a time of rebirth, a “great awakening.” Citizens across the world are leading the charge in critical mass against the intolerance of racial injustice. Ignited by the murder of George Floyd, champions from every class, ethnicity, religion and age, as well as leaders in activism, grassroots organizers, and private and public industries are emerging in power and growing in strength. They are bound by their purpose—to hold our country accountable to the standards of what it truly means to be a united nation of one and to demonstrate that Black lives matter.
We have a responsibility to listen, learn, and act. In our collective effort to effectively lead against racial injustice, the Center for Public Leadership and colleagues at Harvard Kennedy School have assembled a list of anti-racism resources for members of our community.
