Friends, this piece describes some alternative ways to celebrate the Fourth of July that include less blind nationalism and more uplifting communities that American institutions have so long worked against: https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/8xezv3/fourth-of-july-independence-day-alternative

See also educator Valeria Brown’s thread of suggested resources – including Rev. Dr. William Barber, Fannie Lou Hamer, Frederick Douglass, Khzir Khan, and Ta Nehisi Coates – on Twitter: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1014152372736667648.html

If you introduce some of these strategies and resources to a majority-white barbecue near you in connection with July 4th, please come back to our Continuing Conversations on Race and White Privilege at 6pm (special time!) on Monday, August 6th at the Princeton Public Library; we’d love to hear your stories!
