Image one: E-book titled The Racial Healing Handbook: Practical Activities to Help You Challenge Privilege, Confront Systemic Racism, and Engage in Collective Healing (2019) - synopsis: The Racial Healing Handbook offers practical tools to help you navigate daily and past experiences of racism, challenge internalized negative messages and privileges, and handle feelings of stress and shame. You'll also learn to develop a profound racial consciousness and conscientiousness and heal from grief and trauma. Most importantly, you'll discover the building blocks to creating a community of healing in a world still filled with racial microaggressions and discrimination.

Image two: E-book titled Uncompromising Activist: Richard Greener, First Black Graduate of Harvard College (2017) - synopsis: Richard Theodore Greener (1844–1922) was a renowned black activist and scholar. In 1870, he was the first black graduate of Harvard College. During Reconstruction, he was the first black faculty member at a southern white college, the University of South Carolina. He was even the first black US diplomat to a white country, serving in Vladivostok, Russia. A notable speaker and writer for racial equality, he also served as a dean of the Howard University School of Law and as the administrative head of the Ulysses S. Grant Monument Association. 

Image three: E-book titled Hashtag Identity: Hash-tagging Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Nation (2019) - synopsis: Hashtag Identity is among the first scholarly books to address the positive and negative effects of Twitter on our contemporary world. The essays in Hashtag Identity consider topics such as the social justice movements organized through Hashtag Black Lives Matter, Hashtag Ferguson, and Hashtag Say Her Name; the controversies around Hashtag Why I Stayed and Hashtag Cancel Colbert; Twitter use in India and Africa; the integration of hashtags such as hashtag no homo and hashtag on fleek that have become part of everyday online vernacular; and other ways in which Twitter has been used by, for, and against women, people of color, LGBTQ, and Global South communities.
