Five Things To Read & Listen To

Like many people, the events of the last few weeks, prompted by the murder of George Floyd, have encouraged me to think more seriously about my racist failings and those of our society. This is a list of five works that I’ve found particularly thought-provoking during this period and I recommend to you.


Ta-Nehisi Coates on the Ezra Klein Show, Why Ta-Nehisi Coates is hopeful

Julius Eastman, Stay On It

Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye

Vann Newkirk, Floodlines

Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption


Thanks to Joanna Ward for suggesting The Bluest Eye and my sister Cressida Ballance for Just Mercy.
