Antiracist Reading List

We stand in solidarity with Black people and all PoC, at this moment and always.

It is in our community’s best interest to educate ourselves on the oftentimes violent, systemic racism Black people face everyday. Presented here is a list of books we hope you can read, share and most importantly, learn from. This is in no way comprehensive! There are many other voices to be heard and stories to tell. Let’s start listening to Black voices.

If you are unable to afford books on racial injustice and need monetary assistance, we can help offset a portion of the cost. Ask an employee about our Antiracist Education Fund at checkout.

Visit our audiobook partner, Libro.fm, for a selection of 2020 audiobooks by BIPOC. You can also find this list in audiobook format here.
