Resources for Anti-Racism

“Dear White People: Being An Ally Isn’t Always What You Think”

Each of us must find our place in this struggle—including white people who wish to identify as allies right here in Craftsbury Common. As a resource, the College is providing a recent article by Associated Press reporters published in the New York Times.

 

Anti-Racism Book List:

As an educational institution, we would be remiss, if we did not include resources for those ready to do more self education on anti-racism, white privilege, and white supremacy culture. Here is a list of recommended readings to build upon or increase your personal understanding and advocacy. Come Fall 20, copies of each of these books will be available in the Sterling Library, to build upon our standing collection. Please remember, if you are making a purchase of new books, invest in purchasing from black-owned bookstores: Mahogany Books, Marcus Books, and Good Books.
