We recognise the urgent need for education for some members of our audience after seeing the ignorance in some of the responses and comments on our posts. Any form of racist, prejudicial or hateful dialogue will not be tolerated on any of our channels, any comments of this nature will be deleted and users permanently blocked from our channels
Whilst we have been working internally to educate ourselves and will continue to do so on an ongoing basis, we also have a responsibility to encourage our fans to do the same. We have set up a dedicated page on our website, with a collection of educational documents that we have found useful. This will continue to grow and we welcome any recommendations, please send an email through to email@example.com with the subject header ‘Anti-Racist Educational Resources’
All of these should be available at libraries. If you have the means to purchase books, please prioritise independent booksellers and Black owned bookshops and distributors over Amazon.
