Anti-Racist Resources

Anti-Racist Resources blog post by Aspasia S. Bissas

The Orem Public Library put out a good list of anti-racist books on their blog: https://justbrowsingopl.wordpress.com/2020/06/17/antiracist-reading-list/

The New York Institute of Technology has a great list of resources that you can start using right now: https://libguides.nyit.edu/c.php?g=666045&p=4761364

And for more of a Canadian-specific focus, the University of Toronto offers this list: https://onesearch.library.utoronto.ca/anti-black-racism-reading-list

  1. What a great idea to share these links! I never thought about them having books on racism, I don’t know why, I just haven’t. My grandkids are mixed and we have had so many conversations with what is going on today. They are being brought up to know we are all equal and they just don’t comprehend racism. Being white myself, it’s difficult for me to explain the hatred as I have none. Maybe these books could give me some insight to help them understand better. They are young, 5 & 9 but my 9 year old is asking a lot of questions.

    1. Thank you! I think some of these books could definitely help with talking to your grandkids (in fact, there are anti-racist books specifically for kids too, although I don’t think any were included on these lists). I’m starting with the links on the NY Tech Institute page, and it is quite eye opening. Here’s an article you can read now, if you’re interested in some history: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/black-history-american-democracy.html
