Black Lives Matter: Home

The Black Lives Matter protest movement began as a response to state-sanctioned violence against Black Americans, and has become "an international human rights movement." This guide provides resources on the numerous ways in which racial oppression manifests in American life. Please email a librarian if you'd like to talk further about any of these categories or resources. (Some of the books began as shorter-form pieces that might work better for your course, for example.)
