This is a collection of resources to educate the community on issues surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement and protests. These issues include topics such as anti-racism, systemic racism, systemic oppression, police brutality, mass incarceration.

Library Staff Recommendations

We asked Library staff to recommend a resource focused on anti-racism or made by a Black creator. Below are resources that library staff have recommended because these are resources that they have used to learn how to effectively practice anti-racism and celebrate Black lives. We hope that by sharing these resources that it will give others the opportunity to use them to educate themselves.
