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 main floor atrium.

Book not on the shelf? You can request it from another library using the EZBorrow or ILLiad link below the title. If you want our copy of the book when it is returned, place a hold on it. Do that by clicking on the hold link below the title, sign-in, and click on Request. You'll be notified when the book is available for you to pick up in the library.

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 or stop by the display and leave us a note.
