Racial Justice Book Club Reading Guide

Just gathering all of our previous reads (along with some recomendations and read-alikes) in one place on the internet.

About the Racial Justice Book Club

The Racial Justice Book Club (RJBC) is an avenue for discussing issues of race, race relations, and racial justice.  It is critical that we as members of a campus community come together to talk about the impact that racism, individualized and institutionalized, have on the members of our campus community and our campus environment.

Through readings, online discussion, and in person discussion, the Book Club will address issues of racism throughout history with a focus on what we need to do now to change the course of racism, and take action toward bettering ourselves and creating an equitable and just campus and world.  

The Multicultural Student Center for Equity and Justice and the UTSA Libraries are co-sponsoring the Racial Justice Book Club, with Ann Margaret Trujillo and Ammi Bui coordinating.

Membership in the RJBC is limited to UTSA affiliated members, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors to the Club.

However, this guide is for everyone! Use the links on the left to navigate! If you have any questions, feel free to email Ammi (my contact info is listed on the bottom-left of the home page)!

Questions You Might Have

  1. Why are there so many repeats? We're big on intersectionality here at the RJBC, so many of these titles will overlap in terms of the themes, issues, topics, etc. that they bring up. 
  2. I have a book I think would be perfect for this book club to read. How do I suggest a title? Please email us at multicultural@utsa.edu or just click the Email Me button to the left and send me (Ammi) an email directly!
