Good Faith Media has dedicated a portion of its site to racial justice resources.
GFM is collaborating with Carol Ann Vaughn Cross to provide curated articles, books, videos, podcasts and other digital content.
Vaughn Cross is assistant professor in the Howard College of Arts and Sciences at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. She studies social history at the intersection of religion, technology and culture, sex and gender, and holds a doctorate in history from Auburn University.
“These are resources that I share with my students. They reflect contributions of colleagues, the virtual conversations we all can have with authors who share their expertise with us, and my own learning from them,” Vaughn Cross said.
“I view bibliographies as a dinner party to which we invite virtual friends with whom we can be in conversation. I want to engage truth-seekers and truth-tellers, and I appreciate recommendations of those we should be inviting to our conversations about racial justice in the past, present and future.”
The resources are organized into the following eight categories, each of which has its own page:
- History bookshelf: primary sources
- History bookshelf: secondary sources
- Freedom and mobility (in)justice
- Lifting as we climb
- What’s taking so long?
- Self-reflection and auto-ethnography
- Tools for cultivating personal and public virtue
- Miscellaneous digital resources
For each category, Vaughn Cross has selected two resources to feature on the resource landing page, with the full resource lists organized by type: article, book, multimedia and other.
“There are different types of resources here in genre, format, audience and purpose. I hope that both individuals and groups will find something meaningful and useful,” Vaugh Cross said.
“I welcome suggestions, and I am happy to share those that I have considered and why. Good bibliographies are living documents that make room for additions and updates as they inspire us with aspirational ‘to-do’ reading lists. I appreciate Good Faith Media’s commitment to curating important, reputable resources for everyone. Happy reading and research!”
You can find all of the resource pages, including explanations of each category, here.
