"In recent days, we’ve seen what it looks like when people of all races, ethnicities, genders and backgrounds rise up together, standing in solidarity for justice ... We’ve seen our faces in another American mirror — a reflection of the best of who we are and what we can become."

"We must fight for economic justice. We cannot achieve racial justice and create a secure and thriving democracy without also transforming our economic systems. Our only hope for our collective liberation is a politics of deep solidarity rooted in love."

"We must reimagine justice. The days of pretending that tinkering with our criminal injustice system will 'fix it' are over. The system is not broken; it is functioning according to its design."

"We must face our racial history and our racial present. Trump would not be the president and George Floyd would not be dead if our nation had committed itself to reparations, reconciliation and atonement for the land and people that colonizers stole, sold and plundered."

"Our democracy hangs in the balance. This is not an overstatement. If we do not learn the lessons of history and choose a radically different path forward, we may lose our last chance at creating a truly inclusive, egalitarian democracy."

Reading won't solve problems like systemic racism or police brutality. Neither will bookstore Tweets, for that matter. But reading books, especially vital antiracist books like these, builds empathy and knowledge that can be a foundation for working towards solutions.

"If we fail to free people in this pandemic because we’d rather risk their lives than allow them to come home earlier than our criminal injustice system originally planned, we should consider ourselves guilty of utter disregard for human life. Let our people go."

"Growing numbers of people are beginning to see how the politics of white supremacy have resurfaced again and again, leading to the creation and maintenance of new systems of racial and social control. A politics of deep solidarity is beginning to emerge.."
