Compilation of Resources for Conversations About Racism
Julie Boulton, Department Head of History and Contemporary Studies at a high school in Canada, has compiled Anti-Racist Resources, inspired by the thread created by Melinda D. Anderson—#CharlottesvilleCurriculum—on Twitter in response to the white supremacist/neo-Nazi rally, violence, and murder that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. Sections of Boulton’s compilation are titled “Charlottesville,” “History of Racism,” “Race + Education,” “Having Difficult Conversations in Class/Student Empowerment,” “Films/Media,” “Resources for Young Children,” and “Canadian Resources.” The information, presented in chart form, includes the type of resource, notes on the content presented in the resource, the audience for whom the information is appropriate, and the source of the content. The document also appears in Julie Boulton’s blog, “DREAMERS: make the changes that make the world a better place.”
