Social Justice Resources: Black Stories

This collection of resources seeks to amplify black stories, voices, and issues concerning race and racism as well as to add understanding of the role that our society has played (and is playing) in perpetuating racism.


This LibGuide was created for those who wish to educate themselves through books, videos, and other resources on important social justice issues, and the viewpoints of marginalized populations. While the GHC library staff and faculty have made a substantial effort to provide numerous resources, this is not a comprehensive guide. If there are resources you consider relevant, or resources that were left out that you feel should be included, please contact us:
