This racial justice resource guide is here to support all members of our community as we journey toward greater understanding and action, whether we are just starting to learn or have been deeply involved in this work for years.
We hope that you take time to read, listen, and reflect on the themes found here. Our goal is to make our communities more inclusive and to awaken ourselves to a future in which we don’t hesitate in confusion, frustration, or fear, but instead search for and uproot each seed that restricts us from achieving our collective dream of freedom and justice.
This collection of resources is only the start. Some of the titles may cause us discomfort, but let’s challenge ourselves to read them anyway. Here is where we might all begin to learn and explore, but it should not be where we end—our voices and actions matter.
Stay safe and well. We are with you.
Access Notes for Students and Employees:
Following up on Dr. Hall’s email about our need to lean in and understand more after the shootings in Atlanta, we wanted to share some resources about the history of Asians in the U.S. and discrimination they face, in order to contextualize what it means to say "Stop Asian Hate."
We know that Covid-19 has led to the scapegoating of Asians, which has led to a spike in racist acts in the past year. However, discrimination against Asians in the U.S. has a long and painful history. In the coming weeks, the DEI team will continue to work with the Nobles librarians to add additional resources to combat anti-Asian racism.
Please click on the image #StopAsianHate above to access the current collection of resources; we appreciate your understanding as it is a work in process and we welcome your suggestions of additional resources for consideration.
In this document, created by seminarians and students at Princeton Theological Seminary, you can find a scaffolded approach to approaching antiracist learning. Many of the resources found in this document are also in this guide; some are not. Please reach out to the library if you are having trouble accessing any of these resources.
