Black Lives Matter.

Reading, reporting, and resources.

We can’t pretend the world isn’t what it is. You might argue that’s gone on long enough. You can’t really argue with how much of what we talk about, here on Best Evidence and in true-crime conversation generally, proceeds directly from black lives not mattering…in any case, it felt wrong to us to do a “normal” newsletter today. So, in lieu of the customary Best Evidence round-up of links and longform pieces, we’d like to throw the floor open to you, readers: the anti-racist reading you’ve found essential, the bail-relief orgs that need our attention, the useful Twitter accounts and worthwhile reporting you’ve relied on in the last week.

We’ll get back to the usual digest later in the week. Please be safe out there, wherever your “there” is. — EB and SDB
