As protests around the country against racism and police violence continue, following the murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Kentucky, and so many other Black Americans, demand for books about race and anti-racism has increased exponentially. Out of a desire to support the movement to dismantle white supremacist institutions and to end racism and in solidarity with movements for social justice, we have curated a collection of anti-racism materials for the Trinity College community. Ultimately, these readings are meant for people to educate themselves so that they can build coalitions across difference in order to eliminate systemic racism. This guide takes a broader view of what counts as "text" and, thus, includes books (print, electronic, and open access), videos, and podcasts. Library student staff can pull print books for you and send them to your Trinity office via campus mail. Staff can also make arrangements for you to pick up books outside the Information Services Desk. Just remember that the library is still not physically open and staff time is limited. Are we missing a title from this list? There is a feedback form included in the guide.
