Listen, Learn and Amplify

Dear Ten and Co Family,

This last week was emotional and eye-opening. We realize there is so much more learning to do, and recognize that this is only the beginning. It's amazing to live in a time where there is so much information readily available, but know it can easily become overwhelming. To help, we have compiled a list of books, movies/docuseries and podcasts that have been recommended from trusted resources to help amplify black voices.
I hope you can join us in listening, learning and amplifying for years to come.
Black Lives Matter.
