Overcoming racial injustice and building genuine equality is a long-term struggle and requires that we all pull together in both large and small ways. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion task force convened by President Cech wants to recognize and celebrate the anti-racist work that happens day-to-day on our campus. And!... we have free books to give away to you all (summer reading anyone?).

The Hate u Give is a bestselling novel by Angie Thomas (and a film by the same name) and So You Want to Talk About Race is a book by Ijeoma Oluo exploring and explaining the dynamics of race and racism in American life.

Here's how it works:

Send us a copy of (or link to) any essay, artwork, podcast, creative writing, poem, video, musical composition, or course assignment that works in some way to understand or overcome racial injustice. There's nothing too big or small to qualify! Send these via email to Prof. Meyer (emeyer@carroll.edu) with "Saints Against Racism" in the Subject line by April 23rd. In the email, be sure to include your name and a title for the work. That's it!

Invite your friends and classmates to submit their work if you know they've done this kind of work this year.

We will collect the anti-racist work you all have done on campus this semester and enter each student who submits work into a drawing for the free books (ten of them). Winning students will be notified and can collect their books in the last week of class.

Then, we will celebrate and recognize Carroll student's anti-racist work by listing student names and the titles on the college's webpage. We won't share the content of your work publicly (beyond the title) without asking directly for your permission.

Thanks to Montana Book Co. on the gulch for contributing to this project.
