Becker Library has been working to collect more resources on anti-racism and the Black Lives Matter movement. These resources help inform on both the longtime struggles and current crises surrounding Black and indigenous people of color (BIPOC), and how we can all heal as a community. Whether it is confronting our own biases, learning about the experiences of BIPOC, or healing from the trauma that surrounds prejudice, we are adding these anti-racism resources to support the health of our campus community.
The following books are available for checkout in the Feuerstein Health & Wellness Information Center on the first floor of the library. Please feel free to suggest additional purchases for this collection using our suggestion form.
