There’s no single answer, but some people are doing their part in helping others educate themselves. Betsy Faulkner from Manchester created a poster with a list of books, movies, documentaries, and podcasts that people should read, watch, and listen to if they want to support BLM.

What to watch




“How can I use my privilege to help?”

Betsy doesn’t deny that she has white privilege—instead, she says she used it to make important information accessible to everyone. She urges people to do more than simply repost images on the internet. Real change happens when we change and learn new things.

She believes that other people can use their own privilege to help. According to Betsy, we should all be proactive by standing up to racism, protesting, signing petitions, holding ourselves accountable, and supporting POC businesses. But the biggest way to make a difference is by exercising your political rights and by voting.

One of the books that Betsy mentioned in her poster is White Fragility by University of Washington professor Dr. Robin DiAngelo. In her book, she analyzes why white people find it difficult to talk about racism and discusses how they can engage more constructively across race. You can watch a lecture by DiAngelo on the topic right here. It’s long but it’s very insightful.

People absolutely loved her poster and some had additional suggestions about what to read and watch
