Black Lives Matter Resources

 

 

 

 

We stand in solidarity with our community and are committed in our stance to end systemic racism. 

 

This is a time to enact meaningful change and we know real change begins with knowledge and action.

 

There is more we can do, more we have to do, and more we must do.

 

With that, below find this week's recommendation of black authors, films, musicians and restaurants we think you should know and support.
