Not sure where to start? Here are a few books that can help you be more than “not racist.”
Mizzou students, staff, and faculty can access these ebooks using the links. If you have a Daniel Boone Regional Library library card, you can check out the titles featured in the Daniel Boone Regional Libraries’ list of antiracist recommendations.
We have many more books available in print, and starting in July, you can place a copy on hold to pick up using our curbside service.
