THE LINCOLN COMMUNITY IS HARD AT WORK CULTIVATING RESOURCE LISTS IN ORDER TO SUPPORT ANTI-RACIST LEARNING for all individuals in our community. Below are the links to these resource compilations. If you are part of a community organization that lists, curates, or develops anti-racist resources, please contact us to be included.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE RESOURCE LIST FOR OUR COMMUNITY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY THE LINCOLN
PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Their Resources for Anti-Racist Learning and Action is designed to provide a place for directed self-
learning about identity and race, no matter where you are in your anti-racist journey:
“The content on this site includes articles, podcasts, movies, books, and more for Lincoln Public Schools educators, staff, and our community members to engage with in order to explore race and its many intersectionalities. Our intent is that educators, families, and community members will use these tools to consider their own racial identity, the identity of our students and families, and the institutional and systemic racism that we all live in and can perpetuate daily. The site is not an attempt to share a wide variety of differing opinions on race; rather it is explicitly focused on highlighting voices that teach about racism and help us enact antiracism. We must grow our understanding of race in our country and within ourselves for us to make progress toward collective work around antiracism; no amount of district, town, state-wide, or national work on its own will solve racism if we do not all invest in significant, intentional exploration on our own.”
The Anti-Racist Resource Guide “was created to be used as A RESOURCE FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO BROADEN
THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF ANTI-RACISM AND GET INVOLVED TO COMBAT RACISM, specifically as it relates to anti-
Blackness and police violence. Within this guide, please find a variety of resources to explore practical ways to understand,
explain, and solve seemingly intractable problems of racial inequity, white supremacy, police violence, and injustice.”
THE LINCOLN METCO COORDINATING COMMITTEE provides links to literature & other resources, videos, and activities to engage the whole family in anti-racist learning. They have also put together a list of MLK Resources for children and parents in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
THE LINCOLN LIBRARY has created a booklist “Talking About Race with Kids”.
FIRST PARISH LINCOLN has created a compilation of ANTI-RACIST BOOKS, FILMS, AND COMMUNAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES for all members of our community.
THE LINCOLN FAMILY ASSOCIATION has also created a comprehensive list of anti-racism resources.
