Best Books on Anti Racism

Do you know what I love about Fridays? The fact that I have an entire weekend to wake up a little bit early, snuggle up on the couch with my tea, and dive into a good book before the kids wake up. Some of my favorite books this last year have been on racism, regenerative agriculture, and sustainable living. I’d like to share these books with our community today!

This will be an ongoing list and I will simply update this blog post on the regular. I cannot read ALL the books out there, so please feel free to recommend any of your favorite books on these topics so we can stay on top of all the best resources! Either drop them in the comments or feel free to comment on our Instagram!
