Anti-Racist Reading List

Readings in Anti-Racism

A collection of books, ebooks, and films to help you learn, grow, think, question, and explore racism and to help you become an anti-racist. You can also visit the display and check out these items in the library on the first floor atrium.

Make A Suggestion! There were so many good books to choose from for this display that we’re sure we missed something. If there is a book that you think we should add that will help you or others on their path to anti-racism, please let us know. Email skaspere@mansfield.edu.
