Topical - Resources for Racial Reconciliation and Justice: Home

Books, articles & more in support of communities talking about race.


This resource list was created as part of a campus-wide initiative in partnership with the Black Religious Scholars Group/Crump Visiting Professorship. As we move toward greater justice and mercy, we seek to create conversations characterized by honesty and generous openness. We believe this effort will strengthen our community, bear witness to our unity in Christ, and make the seminary even more hospitable to all people. This libguide is a living document that is updated regularly. If you have resources to suggest, please contact the Harrison Librarians at
