Which Books Do We Choose?

We select an assortment of books with the goal of igniting action that will contribute to ending white supremacy. We choose books that:

  • Center the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC); 
  • Raise awareness and build understanding of power, privilege, and systemic racism, and; 
  • Promote healing.

Accessibility is a key consideration: we want to ensure that people of different races, ethnicities, ages, languages, religions, and educational backgrounds are able to find books that support their personal learning and growth.

As of November 2020, we have selected 232 titles and purchased 1,032 books. Please help us increase our book purchases by visiting the Donate page.

Below is a selected list of the books that we have ordered to support Libraries for Liberation. If there is a book you’d like to see on this list, please check out our Distribute page and suggest books through the form!
