RACIAL JUSTICE RESOURCES AND READINGS:

  • New Episode of Birth Justice NYC podcast: 2019 NYC Public Artist in Residence Taja Lindley’s podcast launched earlier this month, and each Wednesday releases a new episode. This week’s episode, Sistas on the Rise: A History of Organizing Teen Parents in NYC, features an interview with Leslie Grant Spann and dives into the history of reproductive justice community organizing in the Bronx and nationwide with young parents in the early 2000s.
  • Black-led and centered cultural groups: Growing out of the Black Lives Matter movement, this crowdsourced spreadsheet collects Black-led and/or centered cultural entities here in NYC. Since its release in mid-June, the list has grown by nearly a third and now includes 190 nonprofits, collectives, and small businesses that make Black culture all over NYC.  Hat tip to Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission Chair Kemi Ilesanmi for sharing this resource.
  • Race in America – Darren Walker on Reimagining Capitalism: In the wake of mass social upheaval and a global pandemic, concerned leaders are examining the nature of the capitalist system and its relationship to conditions that spurred and intensified these twin crises. In this video, Ford Foundation president Darren Walker joins Washington Post columnist David Ignatius to talk about rethinking modern capitalism.
