Anti-Racism: A resource guide


The Knight-Capron Library stands with Black Lives Matter and all who protest against systemic and recurring acts of violence against Black people. These books, ebooks, and films are available to the University of Lynchburg community. This guide is by no means exhaustive. It is offered as a starting point and is focused on materials available through Knight-Capron.

In his article "The Anti-Racist Reading List," (The Atlantic, 12 February 2019) Ibram X. Kendi, Professor of History and Director of the BU Center for Antiracist Research, recommends a list of books to begin learning about anti-racism. Kendi organizes the readings by the categories you see below.
