Self-Educate About Racism

Good Books To Borrow from Follen’s Library

If you want to learn more about what it means to be white in America, to be black in America, and how we all got here, Follen has started a collection of books that should help. Sign one out for as long as you need it (within reason), then return it for the next person. See Books About Racism for brief reviews of all the books we now have, some of which are:
  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
  • Between the World and Me
  • White Privilege: Essential Readings on the Other Side of Racism
  • 11 Reasons to Become Race Literate: A Pocket Guide to a New Conversation
If you have books (or films) that have helped you understand how racism works in America, your community, or yourself that you would like to add to the collection, great! Please email Follen Responds to Racism.
