The BCH community is large and decentralised (no one is in charge), and the community have produced a ton of great resources about money, cryptocurrency, history and Bitcoin Cash.
All of the following creators and resources are highly recommended:
Published on October 31st 2008, the Bitcoin whitepaper is the original explanation and design specification for the currency by (anonymous, and inactive since 2011) creator Satoshi Nakamoto. It is technical, but only 9 pages (including pictures!) and worth reading to understand Bitcoin directly from its progenitor.
Note that the original Bitcon community (starting in 2009) split into the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) communities on August 1st 2017. The original community could not agree on the direction of the project, and as there is no one in charge of Bitcoin who could decide the debate, the two groups split the original Bitcoin into two competing versions of Bitcoin (called "forks"). The Bitcoin Cash community was determined to maintain the original design and mission specified in the whitepaper - a peer-to-peer electronic cash system - while the Bitcoin BTC community decided instead to become "digital gold".
Bitcoin was created to provide an alternative to the US Federal Reserve banking system, which silently profits off the labour of the entire world's population. This is a great explanation of the system, and demonstrates the need for an independent currency.

Watch the BCH and BTC blockchain transactions live, seen as passengers boarding a bus.

Chat to the BCH community. As the subreddit was started after /r/Bitcoin began banning all big block opposition, the refugees moved to /r/btc and so ended up squatting on their opposition's ticker symbol when Bitcoin Cash was later invented. A subject of much confusion and mirth to this very day. Also check out /r/Bitcoincash
Kim Dotcom talks to BTC Core supporters about Bitcoin, during the period he was trying to reconcile the two communities. Later he would convert fully to the BCH side after discovering just how fruitless it was trying to talk sense with the BTC side. Things became somewhat uncordial in response, as can be heard on Episode 12 of the podcast.
A big blocks scaling strategy getting Bitcoin Cash to 10 billion people trading directly on the main chain has been known to be viable starting as early as 2017.
