Journaling for Anti-Racism

There are so many resources out there for beginning an anti-racist practice. Rather than re-post resources that many others have shared over the past few weeks, I want to offer some additional tools for an anti-racist practice that relate to journaling and creativity. I am not an expert by any means, but I have been trying to integrate this into my own journaling and self-reflection practice for many years thanks to my profession (I am an art educator with a focus on social justice, and I’m white), so I thought perhaps some of these resources and journaling suggestions could be as helpful for others as they have been for me.

To be clear: This post is not a replacement for the incredible resources others have shared. This post is an addition to help you on the next step: the lifelong step of working on your anti-racist practice.

Evolution of a Spread

Recently I started using a new weekly spread layout in my bullet journal and I thought I would go into some detail about how I designed it, what I tweaked to perfect it, and what tools and stationery I used to make it.

Above you can see an overview of the first version of this spread. I was inspired by Mossery Co’s horizontal weekly spread in their 2019 planners. I love their planners so much! If they made an undated one I just might have to switch from my bullet journal… but I digress.
