Reading for Change


The Swisher Library at Jacksonville University has gathered library-owned resources here to learn more about race and racism. This guide serves as a starting point. The reading lists are not a comprehensive list of resources available in the Swisher Library nor do they capture all of the many facets of the larger conversations happening. This guide is continuously evolving. 

We welcome material recommendations from the JU community. Please fill out this form to send us your suggestions.

The Swisher Library at Jacksonville University believes in equity, diversity, and inclusion. The American Library Association's Library Bill of Rights states that "all libraries are forums for information and ideas." These principles are the foundation of our department in supporting the campus community. Learn more about the Library Bill of Rights here.
