Education is a powerful tool against racism. In response to the Alumni Association's message of solidarity following the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, alumni and other members of the Brandeis community shared important resources produced by Brandeisians around race, combatting racism and how to enact change.

From books like The Meaning of Freedom: And Other Difficult Dialogues by Angela Davis ’65 to podcasts like At the Intersection with Brian Kennedy, MPP’16, to event recordings like America’s Racial Reckoning: Black Lives and Black Futures in Historical, Political and Legal Context, we encourage you to engage with these resources and share them with others.

Additionally, The Brandeis Social Justice and Social Policy Program has also compiled a list of recommendations from Brandeis faculty and staff, titled "In Support of Black Lives Matter.

The following list is a work in progress, and is by no means exhaustive. Members of the Brandeis community are encouraged to share additional resources here which will be added below.
