In light of the continuing nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and in support of educating the Lafayette community on anti-racism, we have created a list of publications by some of our Africana Studies faculty. All of the publications are available electronically (through OneSearch or the Lafayette Digital Repository), in print, or through interlibrary loan.
