Racism is a public health crisis, and is undoubtedly shaping, reframing, and reimagining the future of academic libraries. There’s much work ahead of us to educate ourselves as antiracists, to always and everywhere affirm that Black Lives Matter, and to celebrate and promote the contributions and leadership of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in libraries. 

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required.
