There are so many ways to speak up and act for change right now. One of the ways that I am
working to affect change in my house is by consciously choosing the resources we use in our
schooling. A move towards a decolonized homeschool is a slow process, for sure, but more and
more excellent resources are available if you seek them out and make it a priority. I encourage
you to do so. It’s vital for us all to broaden the narrative and reframe how we see the world.
Plenty of people have comprehensive lists and I don't claim to be an expert, but I want to share
what's on our bookshelves right now. This list is focused on African-American and Indigenous
voices. Mind you, my kids are 10 and 12 so I don’t have as many links for younger children. If
you do have youngers, check out Here Wee Read, Lee and Low, and this list on GoodReads.
Finally, when you do go to buy, I encourage you to seek out African-American owned online
booksellers. Check out this list for sources.
