1. Irving, Debby, Waking Up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race.
2. Alexander, Michelle, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
3. Coates, Ta-Nehisi, Between the World and Me,
4. Coates, Ta-Nehisi, "The Case for Reparations" in The Atlantic
5. Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity (Film)
6. MacGillis, Alec, "The Third Rail" in Places (for July)
7. Desmond, Matthew, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.
8. McIntosh, Peggy, Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack (pdf)
9. U.S. Department of Justice, Investigation of the Baltimore City Police Department.
10. Speak Up! Responding to Everyday Bigotry by the Southern Poverty Law Center and 5 Ways to Disrupt Racism (video)

Stay tuned for a blog post on each selection that explains why I chose it and some of what I learned from it.
