A few of the recent pieces I recommend reading:

The amazing 1619 Project in the New York Times Magazine. Nikole Hannah Jones introduces it: “Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true.”

Vann R. NewKirk II in The Atlantic: The Great Land Robbery: The shameful story of how 1 million black families have been ripped from their farms

Two great pieces on Black maternal health: Catharine Richert for MPR News: For black mothers and babies, prejudice is a stubborn health risk, and Kim Krisberg in The Nation’s Health: Programs work from within to prevent black maternal deaths: Workers targeting root cause — Racism

Nsikan Akpan for PBS News Hour: Why mental illness can’t predict mass shootings
