The L.W. Tyree Library acknowledges the deep inequities present in American society and supports those fighting to dismantle systemic racism, including the Black Lives Matter movement. To help support racial equity, individuals should strive to understand the current and historical context and take action to dismantle all aspects of systemic racism.
While simply reading books or watching videos can never equate to full allyship, the librarians have curated this guide to help you learn about antiracism, along with the historical context of racism in the United States. This is only a start and does not reflect the rich tapestry of Black writings, resources, and organizations that exist. We hope this guide will inspire you to learn and self-reflect.
