This is not a traditional episode of Art History for All. This is in protest of the epidemic of racism and police brutality that black people experience in America every single day. Thanks to the Cult 45 podcast for starting this Podcast Blackout—you can find them at cult45podcast on Twitter or by searching for Cult 45 on your favorite podcast app. I’ve put a list of resources to educate yourself on anti-racism and donate to anti-racist causes in the show notes and at the end of the transcript.
Below are some resources to educate yourself on anti-racism and support anti-racist work. Use these resources as a starting point. Allyship is a process. Do not stop educating yourself, and above all LISTEN TO THOSE TO WHOM YOU WISH TO BE AN ALLY.
