Stopping Fascism: Understanding What Happened and What to Do About It: Reading and Film List (by Ruthie Sakheim)

 

 

 

 

Hey Everyone!

If you are like me, you have shortened your attention span and do a lot of your reading online, clicking and skimming. To be a leader of the Black Panther Party, the reading requirement was 2 hours of reading per day. I’m committing to one hour per day! Here’s a list compiled from some of our Movement luminaries. Feel free to send me titles to add to the next one going out.

We need to understand what’s happening in a deep way while we fight it with all we got.

xoxo Ruthie
