Five Recommendations from The Woke Coach


Hello Friend,

In this time of social distancing, it is important that we continue to engage with each other around issues such as racism and xenophobia. We know that these issues continue to impact us and often show themselves more frequently, and with greater intensity, in times such as these. Right now, it is important that we continue to be more vigilant than ever with our allyship! 

Here are 5 recommendations from The Woke Coach that will help you begin, or continue, your journey of moving From Ally to Accomplice™. 

1. WATCH Bobby Kennedy for President.

A riveting Netflix docuseries that chronicles Kennedy’s political career from Attorney General to candidate for President of the United States. It’s a wonderful, real-life example of what accomplice-ship looks like.

2. READ How to Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.

This book is essential reading (or listening) for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

3. LISTEN to NPR’s White Lies podcast.

In 1965, Rev. James Reeb was murdered in Selma, Alabama. Three men were tried and acquitted, but no one was ever held to account. Fifty years later, two journalists from Alabama return to the city where it happened, expose the lies that kept the murder from being solved, and uncover a story about guilt and memory that says as much about America today as it does about the past.
