BOOKS & FILMS

 

This list is not an endorsement of everything that is presented in these pieces — there is a great amount of nuance in such a complex issue. You’ll rarely find a full piece that uses your favored perspective, level of explicitness, or correct language. It shouldn’t stop us from coming together and being educated. Taken together, we find these books and films a helpful survey of the problem that lies before us.
