At Jefferson Libraries (Paul J Gutman Library & Scott Memorial Library), we know that knowledge is power. Knowledge encourages people to reflect and ask questions, change perspectives, and often inspires action. We are proud to be a source of knowledge for the Jefferson community.
It is our responsibility to invest in resources that: examine systematic racism in our country, are tools to help anti-racist allies, and elevate the voices, experiences, and stories of the Black community.
In this guide, you will find resources on combating racism and understanding the history of racist practices. The books, articles, and sites were selected by Gutman Library and Scott Memorial Library staff.
This LibGuide highlights resources available through the Jefferson Libraries, as well as publicly accessible materials, including videos, e-books, and podcasts. If you have suggestions to add to this list, email us at: AskGutman@jefferson.edu
