Black Lives Matter

Black lives matter. As a literary journal, we firmly believe that words hold power. However, the past few weeks have made it as clear as ever that words alone are not enough. Standing in solidarity and support of the Black community requires sustained, on-going action –– simply being not racist is insufficient and the only way forward is being actively anti-racist. This is work that should continue long after the news headlines change. Allyship is a lifelong practice.

In the spirit of that practice, we have consolidated a list of various resources for actions you can take to learn about and fight against racial injustice that we will continuously update.

“The books are there, they’ve always been there, yet the lists keep coming, bathing us in the pleasure of a recommendation. But that’s the thing about the reading. It has to be done.” – Lauren Michele Jackson
