Anti-Racism Reads

Anti-Racism Reads is a way for the UWaterloo community to increase their education, awareness, and understanding of race, culture and ethnicity across campus, Canada and beyond. 

Growing out of the PART Book Club, Anti-Racism Reads now has a permanent home with the Library and Print + Retail Solutions so our community can continue to engage with the complexities of several relevant and important subjects, such as white fragility, anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism in Canada, the Indian Act, and the equity myth, through reading, discussion and sharing lived experiences. 

Meeting virtually on a bi-monthly basis, each session of Anti-Racism Reads will feature a discussion facilitated by a member of the community or the University of Waterloo campus, initiated by a particular book. 

Upcoming event

February 28, 2023: Jermal will lead the group discussion on the book I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown.

Past events

November 2, 2022: Kelly Laurila, PhD Lecturer from the School of Social Work at Renison University College will lead the group discussion on the book Unreconciled: Family, Truth, and Indigenous Resistance by Jesse Wente.
