Racial Justice & Anti-Racist Resources

A resource list to educate yourself and spark conversation about institutionalized racism



Black Lives Matter Protest

Texas A&M University-San Antonio Library stands with Black Lives Matter, President Matson, and the Black Student Union against all acts of racism and violence.

This guide highlights A&M-SA resources (e-books and streaming videos) and resources freely available online about institutionalized racism in the United States. Topic areas highlighted include the history of race and racism, white privilege, race and education, race and criminal justice, and race and economics. See more information about viewing e-books from off-campus.

This guide is by no means exhaustive and is limited to items that our library is able to provide remote access for. If you know of a related book or film that you would like the library to purchase you can suggest it here, or if you want us to add a resource to this guide please send your suggestions to library@tamusa.edu.
