In 2015, during a wave of student activism aimed at making Yale more inclusive, Bass Library partnered with student groups to create the Reading Resilience Project. The project aims to highlight voices of commonly underrepresented peoples in library collections. The books you find on this site are based entirely on Yale student, staff, and faculty recommendations.
Join us and submit the name of a creative work by and about people of color. Submissions will be open indefinitely and can be used to recommend books, poetry, art objects, films, and other creative works by or about people of color. Recommended books not already available at Yale Library are considered for purchase, in print and e-book format.
Use the tabs above to browse the list of recommended works, including links to the library catalog for access.
