At InsideHook, we’re traditionally in the business of soliciting your attention. As a media company, your attention is our purview. Right now, however, we’re of the firm belief that your attention is better spent elsewhere — now is a time for listening, learning and reflecting, for edifying ourselves about the toxic and deep-rooted oppression that exists in America today and gaining a deeper understanding of it so that we may collectively work toward ending it.

As such, we’re providing the below list of recent coverage from outlets we respect in the hopes that you may utilize these pieces as a resource to help make sense of recent events and the underlying issues that caused them. We encourage you to read, reflect and share — this list is by no means exhaustive, so please consider it a jumping-off point and nothing more. 

If there are pieces not included here that you feel are worthy of attention/inclusion, please reach out to us and we’ll do our best to respond and address.
