Antiracism & Social Justice Resources

Curated collection of resources to use in antiracism and social justice growth and developement.

Films: About this page

The documentaries and independent and commercial films listed here are a representative sample of audiovisual content available for check out from the Broome Library.

The contents of some of these films may shock, disconcert, and surprise. Antiracism and social justice learning requires that we shift our paradigms of understanding to counteract paradigms of power. These titles offer historical and fictional contexts out of which resistance to being dehumanized can bloom.
