Hamilton’s diversity, equity, and inclusion staff has compiled the following list of resources to deepen our community’s understanding of systemic racism and the concrete steps we need to take to address it. We recognize that engaging actively with these resources is just the first step in a long-term process to eradicate racism in our communities and our world. If possible, please support Black-owned bookstores and businesses. The following list of resources was compiled by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein with contributions from the Black, Latinx Student Union and Feminists of Color Collective in May 2020
