Diverse Books and Anti-Racism Resources for Students and Educators: A Huge Collection!
Updated: Jun 24
The Black Lives Matter movement has awakened us. Many of us, especially those of us who are white, are realizing that their pedagogy does not support multiculturalism and BIPOC students.
I've always supported the movement and diversity in my classroom. I am grateful to grow up in town that was fairly diverse. However, as a white person, I've never experienced aggression that others have.
I feel I've done a decent job filling my library with lots of books with a variety of authors, but it needs work. I need to do more. So, I went on a hunt and here you will see all the different resources I find through social media platforms and Google searches. I honestly made this for myself to have a spot to access these resources as needed! Save this link as I may add to it if I find more!
Resources! Books! And more!
