During fall semester, one of the things that faculty and staff members heard from students was that there is a need and desire for materials that would support individual learning about how to be a white anti-racist ally. Jenne Powers, Assistant Professor of Humanities and Writing, initiated a conversation with Roz and me about this, and we decided that a great place to link to materials on this topic would be a library research guide. Writing Center Director Gillian Devereux also contributed good ideas to this effort. We worked on it in November and December, and this January, we were ready to unveil our resource guide, “Anti-racism resources for white allies.”
We hope it provides some places to get started! Like we say on the guide, it’s a work in progress, and we invite the participation of the Wheelock community. Do you want to suggest a resource? Email us. Have feedback to share? Sing it out. Notice a broken link? Let us know.
