Systemic racism is real, and many of our laws are broken. To make America truly equal and free for all people, we must continue working to dismantle racist institutions and create anti-racist social structures in their place.
The Black Voices Initiative by Kavi Gupta Editions fosters the intercultural exchange necessary to sustain this goal by centering the works of Black writers and publishers.
Titles such as How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective and Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot remind us that inclusivity is necessary for social justice movements to truly succeed, reflecting on racism within the Feminist Movement, and sexism and homophobia within the Civil Rights movement.
Memoirs like Black is the Body and I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness map the personal journeys of Black women in America, exposing the complexities and stumbling blocks that stop us from repairing our damaged social fabric.
New classics like The New Jim Crow, Freedom is a Constant Struggle, and Policing the Black Man: Arrest, Prosecution, and Imprisonment lay out how political and legislative power—historically and currently—shape the struggle of oppressed people to secure individual and cultural freedoms.
Best sellers like White Fragility and How to be an Antiracist lay the groundwork for how individuals can own their own social responsibility and converse with each other about the personal ramifications of racial injustice.
Aspirational titles like Black Skin, White Masks, Conversations in Black: On Power, Politics, and Leadership, and Design Justice: Community-Led Practices to Build the Worlds We Need break down constructive strategies to build a more just, equitable, decolonized, and non-exploitative society for all people.
If we can examine what we love through the lens of what we have been taught, the potential for change is real.
It can start with you. It can start with a book.
