This guide is intended as a resource for the Saint Mary's University of Minnesota community, particularly the white and non-Black people of color in our community who seek to contribute more meaningfully to antiracist work.
In this guide, you will find links to many books, articles, and other resources for learning more about African American history, civil rights struggles both historical and contemporary, and antiracism. This guide also attempts to give some context regarding the history of African Americans in the Twin Cities that informs the current crisis there after the murder of George Floyd. We plan to add material on news literacy and being an informed citizen at a time when it can be hard to know where the facts lie.
This guide is a work in progress and will be updated and changed to reflect new information. If you have suggestions, complaints, questions, or comments, please get in touch.
