Racism in America: Resources for Learning, Discussion, and Celebrating Black Voices
February 21, 2023
As librarians, we believe one of our roles is to strengthen our community through sharing information. If you're looking to learn more about systemic racism and social justice, to read more about the experience of people of color in America, or for resources to talk to your children about racism, we have books for you.
In addition to the fantastic books in our collection, we also have access to a ProQuest database called Black Freedom Struggle in the United States, which features more than 1,600 primary source documents related to critical people and events in African American history, from 1790 to the present.
These book lists make it easy to place holds and save titles to your reading list. Check back here as we add more!
