Coney HQ’s Crowdsourced Anti-Racist Reading List

Coney HQ and its people have been making the time to read, educate ourselves, talk, and plan for how we can be stronger allies as an organisation and as individuals – beyond the news cycles. We know this work is overdue. You can read more about the work we’re doing, here

While there are countless, incredibly useful resource lists out there at the moment – we thought we’d share some of the anti-racist resources we have found most useful so far. Find below, books, online articles, videos and more. 

We’ve tried to credit all the works accordingly, but if there are any credits missing, please let us know and we’ll make sure the mistake is remedied. 

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’s where we’ve started. We’ll continue to post monthly additions as we go.
