Inspired by our fellow YWCA sisters around the country (and especially at YWCA Greater Lafayette), we’ve compiled this Mission Media: Ultimate Resource Guide of television shows, movies, books, podcasts, playlists, influencers and more that are widely available and aligned with YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism.

This list highlights stories that are told by and for people of color, that feature strong female leads, and that celebrate culture and diversity. From family-friendly titles, to mature dramas and non-fiction documentaries, there’s something on this list for everyone to enjoy.

We hope you will use this guide to find ways to educate yourself, empower yourself and others, start conversations with family and friends, and take action in your community.

As always, thank you for standing with YWCA to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.


We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think about something you've read, watched, or listened to. Have a favorite that’s not on this list? We’d love to hear it! Send us your ideas for media that reflect YWCA’s mission so we can include it.
