Racial Justice Resources: Keeping Current

Racial justice resources: UW Libraries stand with the Black Lives Matter movement

This guide is a starting point for students and faculty seeking to better understand issues related to racial justice and racism in America. It is a work in progress, additional resources will be added. Please send your suggestions to us.

Reading: Current Editorials, Articles & Essays

The links to articles are grouped by week and are in reverse chronological order. Because the list is getting too long to easily scan, articles from earlier weeks (dating back to May 2020) are available on the Past Articles page of the guide. Use our newspaper databases, Access World News and US Newsstream, to find additional news articles.

This guide is the work of many UW librarians. Specific credits are listed on each page. The original impetus for this project comes from two MLIS students, Bethany Barelman and Chelsea Riddle, and their work on Racial Justice Reads. The banner for the page was created by Chelsea Riddle. This page curated by Theresa Mudrock.
