Timely Reading

book cover for Between the World and Me

What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden? Between the World and Me is Coates's attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. 

Book cover for The New Jim Crow

With dazzling candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that "we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." 

book cover for White Fragility

In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively. Download readers guides at www.beacon.org/whitefragility.

Guide Purpose

This guide is meant to be a resource for the Salem community as we work to understand the history of racism, how it continues to impact our campus, how white folks can stand in solidarity with communities of color, and how we can take steps to work to dismantle white supremacy. Please watch as it will continue to grow over time to address specific sub-topics. We see this as a community effort, so please reach with other resources that might be useful. And please don't hesitate to reach out with any corrections or suggestions. In either case, just SEND AN EMAIL.
