Our Resource Roundup 

From the Race, Culture, & Beyond: A Naked Conversations Podcast Series


Below you will find an ever growing list of the books, films, articles, media clips, and TV shows that Erica and I discuss on the podcast.  ALL of these resources will broaden your understanding of racial identity, racism, and antiracism.  

Some are light, some are academic.  Some are current, others historic.  All of them will expand your view of the world and prepare you to live with more empathy and awareness.

Happy binging, 

From Seasons 4 & 5:


  • A current overview of antiracism (vs. simply not being racist) – Ibram X. Kendi’s “How to Be an Antiracist
  • A first hand account of courage (and humor!) –Year of Yes” by Shonda Rhimes
  • Fabulous books for kids to explain influential people and social movements in a way they can understand. A favorite with Sage’s kids, and excellent gifts!Ordinary People Change the World” book series 
  • A go-to, MUST read for White folks who really want to dig more deeply into their own journey with racism and antiracism.  I highly recommend reading it with a small circle of friends in a book group.  There is advice for how to do this in the back of the book – “Me and White Supremacy” by Layla Saad
  • Eloquent Rage by Brittney Cooper
  • Exploring the important work of author James BaldwinBegin Again by Eddie Glaude
  • The work of Urban Sociologist (and Sage’s professor) Elijah Anderson
  • The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
