As with yesterday’s Talk post, this week’s Links round-up is slightly different. Below, we’ve listed links to AniFem articles penned by Black contributors, as well as our podcasts on Michiko & Hatchin and Learning Japanese as WOC (focused on fetishization and racism faced by Black and brown students in that space).

In addition, we’ve linked several websites staffed by Black writers in our community. Many you may recognize from previous Links posts; we hope you’ll read and support their work as you have so kindly with ours.

Finally, the end of this post includes additional ways to provide financial support to protesters and support networks for Black communities.
