Racial Justice Resources
This spreadsheet of resources has been developed through the Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice to provide information, research, and perspectives on race, racism, and antiracism. We thank our campus and community partners who have shared their resource suggestions with us.
The Google document includes books, articles, movies, TV series, videos, podcasts/podcast episodes, websites, links to social media pages for individuals and organizations, and other resources. Many of the materials are available for free online, through BSU’s Maxwell Library, and/or through your local public library.
Please read, watch, listen, learn from, and share these resources. None of us are ever done learning, and that is especially true in the particular pursuit of becoming an anti-racist.
If you have edits to the existing list and/or would like to suggest additional resources, please email us at MRISJ@bridgew.edu. We’d love to hear from you.

Cultural Humility and Active Allyship: A Virtual Panel of Social Work Faculty
Sponsored by Bridgewater State University School of Social Work
Thursday, July 23, 2020 | 7-8:30 p.m.
Cultural humility combines ongoing self-reflection with a willingness to learn from others with different backgrounds. Social work practice that demonstrates cultural humility is critical in enacting genuine allyship. Two female faculty of color and one white female faculty colleague shared their personal and professional experiences of marginalization, privilege, and the role of cultural humility in efforts of ongoing active allyship. Additionally, the current social context, particularly COVID 19 and race-based police brutality, was explored—with special recognition of the evolving national dialogue about structural racism and justice, routes to authentic cultural humility and active allyship.
Dr. Wendy Champagnie Williams, Associate Professor of Social Work
Dr. Champagnie Williams is first-generation American and college graduate in her family. Her research interests focus on communities of color and dynamics of power, privilege and oppression towards active allyship.
Dr. Judith Willison, Associate Professor of Social Work
Dr. Willison grew up in a white, Jewish, family of teachers who were civil rights activists. Dr. Willison is committed to community advocacy with formerly incarcerated people in efforts to stem mass incarceration.
Dr. Castagna Lacet, Associate Professor of Social Work
Dr. Lacet is Haitian-American, the 10th of 12 children and a first-generation college graduate. Her scholarly interests include building community collaborations, cultural humility, allyship and strengths-based teaching.
