 Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace

  by Angel Koydo Williams


"Rev. Angel’s first critically-acclaimed book was called “a classic” by Buddhist pioneer Jack Kornfield and “an act of love” by iconic writer Alice Walker."

Between the World of Me

by Ta-Nehisi Coates


"Hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading,” a bold and personal literary exploration of America’s racial history by “the most important essayist in a generation and a writer who changed the national political conversation about race” (Rolling Stone)"


"In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis."

How to be an Anti-Rascist

by  Ibram X. Kendi


NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginningcomes a “groundbreaking” (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.  Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other...

Race-ing, Justice and Engendering Power

by Toni Morrison (Editor),

Contributors:  A. Leon Higginbotham, Andrew Ross, Manning Marable, Michael Thelwell, Claudia Brodsky Lacour, Patricia J. Williams, Gayle Pemberton, Nell Irvin Painter, Carol M. Swain


It was perhaps the most wretchedly aspersive race and gender scandal of recent times: the dramatic testimony of Anita Hill at the Senate hearings on the confirmation of Clarence Thomas as Supreme Court Justice. Yet even as the televised proceedings shocked and galvanized viewers not only in this country but the world over, they cast a long shadow on essential issues that define America.

So You Want to Talk About Race

by Ijeoma Oluo


"...In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life."

Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the Rise of Jim Crow

by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.


"The abolition of slavery in the aftermath of the Civil War is a familiar story, as is the civil rights revolution that transformed the nation after World War II. But the century in between remains a mystery: if emancipation sparked "a new birth of freedom" in Lincoln's America, why was it necessary to march in Martin Luther King, Jr.'s America? In this new book, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., one of our leading chroniclers of the African-American experience, seeks to answer that question in a history that moves from the Reconstruction Era to the "nadir" of the African-American experience under Jim Crow, through to World War I and the Harlem Renaissance. "

The Cross and the Lynching Tree

by James H. Cone


"Reconciling the gospel message of liberation with the reality of black oppression and suffering during the lynching era." 

We Can't Breathe: On of Survival Black Lives, White Lies, and the Art

by Jabari Asim


"Insightful and searing essays that celebrate the vibrancy and strength of black history and culture in America by critically acclaimed writer Jabari Asim
In We Can’t Breathe, Jabari Asim disrupts what Toni Morrison has exposed as the “Master Narrative” and replaces it with a story of black survival and persistence through art and community in the face of centuries of racism. In eight wide-ranging and penetrating essays, he explores such topics as the twisted legacy of jokes and falsehoods in black life; the importance of black fathers and community; the significance of black writers and stories; and the beauty and pain of the black body. "

White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

Robin DiAngelo and Michael Eric Dyson


"The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. 

In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. "

White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide

Carol Anderson


"Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; "

Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor

Layla F. Saad


"Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey, complete with journal prompts, to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations."


Updated and expanded from the original workbook (downloaded by nearly 100,000 people), this critical text helps you take the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources, giving you the language to understand racism, and to dismantle your own biases..."
