Black Lives Matter: Titles from Antiracist Reading Lists Available as E-Books at NU Libraries

To assist Northwestern Law faculty, staff, and students with accessing books on racism, the law library has obtained e-books for many of the titles recommended on the Office of Inclusion & Engagement’s Racism Resources list, Ibram X. Kendi’s Antiracist Reading List, and Bridgette R. McCullough’s Booklist to Make Yourself Innocent. How to Be an Antiracist

We thank Bridgette McCullough (member of the NLaw community) and the Office of Inclusion & Engagement for sharing these resources as part of the Real Conversations: Racism, Allyship, and Police Reform program on June 3. 

The following links are to e-books available through NU Libraries (please note that the publishers often limit the number of users who can access an e-book copy at a time, so access information is noted below):

Project MUSE is temporarily making a selection of scholarship on the history of structural racism available here.

Prefer audiobooks? For a limited time, Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America is available to stream on Spotify for free here.

Prefer physical books? Our library system owns print copies of many of the titles listed above as well as additional titles mentioned on these three book lists. You can search NUsearch, our library catalog, to see if we have print copies available for checkout when our library is able to safely resume circulation services.

Main Library has created a research guide containing links to several anti-racism and race awareness materials.

If the title you are interested in is already checked out or not owned by NU Libraries, you can see whether it is available through the Chicago Public Library or through your city’s public library. Alternatively, we encourage you to consider purchasing these titles through Semicolon Bookstore, the only Black woman-owned bookstore in Chicago.
