In partnership with ODI, campus partners mobilized to create a virtual, anti-racism, teach-in series. The anti-racism, teach-in series aims to decolonize contemporary understanding of the resistance to the centuries of abuses and usurpations designed to oppress communities of color, and Black communities in particular, which resulted in the police killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks and Tony McDade.
Collectively, we have carefully curated free resources for you to begin the process of becoming anti-racist. Please note that this list of resources, while long, is by no means exhaustive and therefore, we encourage you to seek out additional resources to build on these foundational anti-racism resources. We also encourage you to share anti-racism resources you found to be helpful with us, at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we may add those resources to this list as well. In the event you have any questions, concerns or need help thinking through some of the items listed below, please reach out to Dean Taifha, Assistant Dean of Students for Diversity & Leadership Development, at AlexanderTN@wofford.edu.
