Reading Lists

The Library has compiled two reading lists for you. They can be found below:

Black Lives Matter - Canadian Reading List: This collection of books is based on the Black Lives Canada Syllabus // #BlackLivesCDNSyllabus first created in 2016 by Anthony N. Morgan as a Twitter hashtag and later compiled as a web-based list by Huda Hassan. It was expanded by Library staff to include titles about anti-Black racism in Canada and the lived experiences of Black Canadians.

Indigenous peoples in Canada - Reading List: This reading list has been compiled to expand and build on current understandings of the experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada.
