This guide is a response to and resource for processing the nationwide George Floyd Protests in 2020.
These protests shine a light on the continued oppression experienced by Black Americans and in particular the effects of police brutality.
We also recommend Kalamazoo College's Praxis Center for additional resources, local learning and growth opportunities, and community connection. The Arcus Center for Justice hosts this overall excellent and thoughtfully curated website with content from faculty and students engaged deeply in social justice work.
General resources, recommended video resources, and an overview of white supremacy
Links to relevant news feeds, articles, podcasts, police brutality information sites, and racial justice and equity organizations
Book lists, information about the Black Lives Matter Movement, articles to better understand racism, and documentaries
We would like to recognize the great work by other libraries and universities that helped us create this guide. Most especially thank you to Penn State University Libraries for allowing us to use their Black Lives Matter guide as a template.
These guides at other institutions have inspired many portions of this guide. We encourage you to check out their guides for even more resources.
