In July 2023, on the second anniversary of John Lewis’ passing, Indivisible sent out a survey asking our network how they were continuing their education about racial justice. Over 500 Indivisibles responded with clarity, passion, and beautifully diverse recommendations.
This resource was cultivated from those survey responses to create For Indivisibles, By Indivisibles: A Racial Justice Reading List.
Every entry on this list received at least one submission from our network, and the majority of the books were cited multiple times. We split the recommendations into two lists:
- The top five most read racial justice books by Indivisibles (these books were submitted up to 45 times)
- A curated list of racial justice readings taken from the responses with an eye toward impact, education, and diverse styles.
This book list is not exhaustive, but we hope it is a useful resource for Indivisibles looking to find more ways to expand their knowledge and broaden their understanding of racial justice.
