Black Lives Matter: Resources from Falvey Library and Beyond

Collage of book covers featured in the article.

By Beaudry Allen, Laura Bang, Deborah Bishov, Sarah Wingo, and Kallie Stahl 

Black lives matter. Antiracism is a lifelong process. Over the past months, we’ve seen an outpouring of interest from our community seeking to learn more and to broaden their understanding of the historical context of our current moment. Our role as the library is to share resources to support learning, so with that in mind, we are sharing a list of books and other resources. No list of this nature could ever be comprehensive, but we hope that this list, compiled by members of the Falvey Memorial Library Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion working group, will serve as a starting point.  

 

Falvey Memorial Library E-Resources
These books and movies are available digitally in our collections and are free to all members of the Villanova University community.  

Freely Available E-books
These e-books are currently (as of September 2020) freely available on the internet. 


Podcasts

These podcasts are freely available on the internet. 


Other Freely Available Resources

These web resources are freely available to everyone. 

Public Libraries
Because of the way e-book licensing works, some e-books not available through Falvey may be available through your local public library. Current Villanova affiliates have access to the collections at the Free Library of Philadelphia and the Lower Merion Library System. If you live outside Pennsylvania, you may have access to other large library systems beyond your local public library.  The following e-books are available from the Free Library, though some have a wait list  

Additional Anti-Racist Reading Lists
