In response to the killing of George Floyd and the world- wide protest demonstrations that his murder has inspired, librarian Kate Johnson has created an  Antiracism Research Guide as a resource for those in the Saint Mary’s University community who “seek to contribute more meaningfully to anti-racist work.”  Use the links to books, articles, and other resources found here to aid in your understanding of African American history, the civil rights struggles, both historical and contemporary, and antiracism. The guide includes three sections on racism specific to the Twin Cities–Structural Racism, Rondo Neighborhood & 1-94, and Police Brutality.  You will also find here reflections from Catholic commentators, advice for evaluating news sources, and statements from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” – Angela Y. Davis
