Families: Birth-Class IV Advocating for Anti-Racism

Literacy and library resources for Brearley families

Birth-IV Advocating for Anti-Racism

These resources are from a variety of anti-racism lists and resources for Birth-Class IV students and families. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list of anti-racism resources, but instead is a specifically curated list of non-fiction and fiction books that directly address racism against black communities, books about black identity, and anti-racism work for allies to black communities. We will continue to update throughout the summer as we build these into inclusive lists that address racism in all communities. If there is something that you're looking for that you don't see on this list, please reach out to anyone in the library department, and we are happy to help provide other resource lists, book suggestions, and ebook access. 

To our white and non-Black POC students and families, we hope these resources can be a help in our collective work towards anti-racism. 

To our Black students and families, we hope these lists can be of use to you in helping you feel seen and your experiences valued.
