Friday roundup: Five things worth paying attention to this week

9.20. 2019 Posted By: Ben Tapper

Here are five things worth paying attention to this month. I recommend selecting one or two and jumping in over the next week.

1. Good White Racist will soon be a staple in racial equity work. This is an investment you definitely want to make.

2. Ever wonder how the United States became so segregated or why communities of color seem run down? Turns out, it was intentional.

3. The beginning of the school year can be dangerous. Take note.

4. White Lies takes you into the rabbit hole as its hosts search for the truth about what happened one summer evening in Selma, Alabama.

5. Sometimes it’s just fun to laugh at generational differences.
