Don’t know what to do next? We have some suggestions to help you spend all of that extra time you wish you had this weekend.

Here are a few things  we thought were worth sharing this week. We hope you enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

If you are not listening to this podcast, you need to be. Our National Conversation about Conversations about Race has been my favorite podcast for the last few months. It is hosted by Berathunde Thurston, Raquel Cepede, and Tanner Colby.

Women in India are being harassed for their online participation. NPR covers it in a short article called Women In India Speak Out on Facebook. Trolls Threaten Rape and Murder

Check out this article in wire that talks about the new ebola documentary. You can watch the film at the end of the article. The film is about a woman named Decontee Davis who uses her faith and immunity to care for orphans and her community. This Ebola Documentary Shows VR Film’s Radical Potential

An Intersectional Feminist against Imperial Feminism demonstrates how Imperial Feminism can tear down the work of intersectionality and discusses the importance of being an advocate instead of a  savior.

The Atlantic has a 13 part series called Mass Incarceration, Visualized that you can check out while you wait for the upcoming October issue.

The Atlantic's photo October 2015 cover. Prominent words read "The Atlantic" and "The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration by Ta-Nehisi Coates" A picture of a large black family is below the title.

Enjoy the weekend!

  1. I was looking for another podcast, so this list comes at a perfect time. Not sure why I wasn’t already listening to Our National Conversation though.

    • It is amazing. So many great conversations, comments, books, and things to check out. It hasn’t been around for that long, so that is probably why you weren’t listening.
