University Libraries Creates new Research Guide for Anti-Racism, #BlackLivesMatter, and Civic Action

by George Oberle

Several librarians from the Mason University Libraries collaborated to produce a new research guide to aid our community in finding scholarship available in the library collections related to Anti-Racism, #BlackLivesMatter, and Civic Action. The guide highlights major themes for researchers to explore including: Anti-Racism and White Supremacy; Caring for the Self and Community; Protest and Civic Action; Prisons, Police, and Abolition; Black Feminist Thought; History of Race and Racism, and our own Center for Mason Legacies. The guide is a work in progress, designed to highlight some of the many resources that the University Libraries has available for our users and to facilitate ongoing scholarly conversations. The guide will be updated frequently as new resources are recommended or made available.
