J.J. Abrams and his production company Bad Robot are hard at work supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight against white supremacy.
The 53-year-old filmmaker, who directed films in the Star Wars franchise and created such TV shows as Lost and Alias, already committed to donating $10 million to anti-racist agendas over the next five years.
Now, Bad Robot has created a 20-page guide that serves as a tool to help dismantle white supremacy at work and at large.
“At Bad Robot, we are committed as storytellers and executives to dismantling white supremacy at work and at large,” the document reads. “With this ever-evolving and far from complete guide, we hope to share some resources to explore and navigate this time for ourselves and with each other as we strive to do the delicate, raw, humbling, and enraging work of anti-racism.”
The company noted, “We have provided attribution to our sources throughout the guide and thank the activists and scholars who have endeavored to consolidate this information. This guide draws from our networks, research, recommendations, and the “Anti-racism resources for white people.”
The guide features articles to read, videos to watch, podcasts to listen to, movies to view, and important Black voices to follow on social media. There is also a guide to anti-racist vocabulary, details of what you should do as a manager at work, and a list of ways people can help the cause.
