We’ve all seen important conversations happening across the world right now about the black lives matter movement. If you, like me, have pledged to commit to learning and educating yourself I’ve put together a concise list of resources from books to podcasts to petitions. Let’s all commit to change together & we can finally start to see a difference.
My social media outlets have always been a place for me to share my passions, mostly fashion and beauty, but at this time I would love to share these with you. They’re not only found & chosen by me, but also by you on my Instagram stories – my lovely audience ❤
If you have any you’d like to add, comment below & I’ll keep updating this post.
