With the extension of the stay at home order, we have more time inside. For those who are itching to make a difference, Soundkeeper is hosting virtual activities like the #PSKVirtualCleanup and the #MayRepurposingChallenge to still make a positive impact while staying safe. Another great way to make a difference while staying home is to further educate and fuel inspiration, which is why we pulled together a list of some of our staff’s favorite books and documentaries pertaining to water and the environment.

For our staff book club we’re reading How We Get Free – The Combahee River Collective by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. The book is about The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, which was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles.

Here is our list of books and documentaries that have inspired our own activism and we hope will inspire yours as well!



Happy reading and watching!
