Black Lives Matter Resources

Here are a few places you can show your support for the Black Lives Matter movement, by reading, donating, and choosing diverse crime fiction.

This is a comprehensive and very useful document listing books, podcast episodes, films and other media that can help you learn more about the anti racist movement.

Donate to Black Lives Matter here, to the Bail Project in the US here, and find links to different memorial funds to support here.

In the UK, you can give directly to Black Minds Matter here, the Stephen Lawrence Trust here, Hope Not Hate here,  or find another charity you want to support from this list.

This Guardian article from 2018 and this list from the i newspaper include some good modern crime fiction by contemporary authors to check out.

A few of my personal favourites:

Wife of the Gods by Kwei Quartey (first Darko Dawson novel)
The Missing American by Kwei Quartey (first Emma Djan novel)
Kwei Quartey’s podcast (sadly not updated since 2017 but still good!)
Streets of Darkness  by A.A. Dhand (first Harry Virdee novel)
Follow Her Home  by Steph Cha (first Juniper Song novel)
The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen (first Rizzoli & Isles novel)
