30 Educators to Follow on Instagram For Helpful Anti-Racist Resources


30+ Anti-racist Education Accounts to Follow on Instagram

So you’ve publicly shared your support for Black Lives Matter. Maybe you’ve made a donation or marched in a rally. You’ve read and shared tons of articles about racism on Facebook. Now it’s important to continue your anti-racist education. Fortunately, social media is full of great teachers. 

Note: many of the people generously offering free anti-racist education on social media have become overwhelmed with emails, DMs, and comments asking for more. This list isn’t an open invitation to add to their load. They are offering resources, tips, and information on their Instagram pages. We all need to do the work researching, reading, and learning ourselves instead of relying on others to spoonfeed it to us. These accounts are a great starting place in conducting your own anti-racist education.
