This Black Woman-Owned Bookstore Has an ‘Ally Box’ Subscription for White Readers Who Want to Learn More

If you, like so many people, are using this moment to educate yourself about racial injustice, white privilege and police brutality, it can be hard to figure out where to start when there's so much worthy literature out there. 

Enter the Ally Box, for "those who want to start but may not know where or how, or what to read first, or what it truly means to be an ally."

Sold by Fulton Street Books & Coffee, a bookstore in Tulsa, Oklahoma owned and operated by Onikah Asamoa-Caesar, the Ally Box is a 3-month limited book subscription for allies (and those who seek to be allies). Each box comes with two books, curated resources, and suggested action steps. Your subscription also includes access to an online learning collaborative to further your racial education. 

What types of books can you expect? Titles like White Fragility by Robin Diangelo, So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo, Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde and more.

Each three-month subscription costs $80/month, and you can preorder now and your first box will ship July 1. Note that when you purchase three or more subscriptions, you get $20 off.

Not sure where to begin? This is an excellent start.
