We’re processing what is happening amongst the Black Lives Matter movement, and how we can positively add to this with education and uplifting voices. For now this post is devoted to pulling together resources and sharing them as widely as possible.
We recognise that Black People and People of Colour have worked tirelessly in educating about their lived experience. We respectfully ask that when you use these resources you follow up with your own research rather than contacting the authors directly (unless they have specified they are happy to be contacted).
At ICLS we are available to discuss your questions and learn together. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form at the bottom of this post.

Our Instagram feed has links to resources, actions you can take and accounts which will help your learning and understanding. There is a BLM resource highlight which has links to relevant posts and videos.
Protests and vigils for the Black Lives Matter movement are going on around the world. With worries about Covid it’s not always possible to join in though. Download, print and use this colouring sheet to think about what you’d say if you were on a march or vigil. Post this on your social media to join in with the online protests.
