With the appalling scenes taking place across USA in the last couple of weeks after the murder of George Floyd, this month we have been looking at ways to educate ourselves further on this incredibly important matter – whether it’s by reading a book, listening to a podcast, diversifying our feeds or watching a documentary on Netflix.

Sarah, Jewellery Consultant

In light of recent events, I have been educating myself on such an important and prevalent topic that has spanned generations. An incredibly insightful documentary to watch on Netflix is 13th. I also watched When They See Us and was blown away by how shocking our system is.

Stephenie, Operations Executive

I have been loving Denise Chaila (@denisechaila) – she’s a Zambian-Irish rapper/poet/hip hop artist from Limerick, her song Chaila is super catchy and the music video is stunning!

Una, Marketing Specialist

I’ve been absolutely loving the ‘diversify your feed’ chains that people have been posting, they’ve introduced me to some absolutely incredible content creators & one of my fave new follows has been @karenbritchick. Her interior styling is absolute goals and I love when she takes us behind the scenes thrifting for amazing vintage pieces! I also can’t stop listening to @irishwomeninharmony‘ s incredible cover of ‘Dreams’ in aid of @safeireland.

Parijat, Digital Designer

I’ve waited all month for season 3 of Dark on Netflix! It’s an incredible show and I’m finding it really difficult to stop myself from binging it all in one go. I’ve also been enjoying the new episodes of The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj (on Netflix as well), which I find really informative and eye-opening while being a lot of fun.

Laura, Head of Marketing

I’m in the middle of reading ‘Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race’ by Reni Eddo-Lodge. It has been incredibly educational and eye-opening. I recommend to read it to understand structural racism and how it truly infiltrates through our society.
