Normally I would be sharing my weekly round-up of the UK and international news in the recruitment and creative space. 

Instead, here is a list of content and resources associated with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and understanding discussions around race and discrimination.

Please note that this is a range of content from different sources, not all of which I have personally read or watched yet.
