Anti-Racist Reading List

"To build a nation of equal opportunity for everyone, we need to dismantle this spurious legacy of our common upbringing. One of the best ways to do this is by reading books. Not books that reinforce old ideas about who we think we are, what we think America is, what we think racism is. Instead, we need to read books that are difficult or unorthodox, that don’t go down easily. Books that force us to confront our self-serving beliefs and make us aware that “I’m not racist” is a slogan of denial...By not running from the books that pain us, we can allow them to transform us. "

- Ibram X. Kendi (professor and director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University, National Book Award-winning author of “Stamped From the Beginning)


We appreciate the large amount of orders for anti-racism books that we have received! But we also encourage you to purchase anti-racism books, or ANY books for that matter, from Black-owned bookstores (you can find a list here).This ensures the money you are spending on anti-racist learning goes towards supporting Black communities. Thank you.

We suggest also checking out this Black Voices Matter Book List. Reading about Black people experiencing joy and just living is also important!
