Resources on Anti-Racism

In June 2020, we published our Statement on Anti-Racism in response to the epochal uprising across the country and around the world in response to the killing of George Floyd, and the reckoning that is underway in the design disciplines to address the long-standing complicity with systemic racism.

Since then, we have been struck by the cogent demands that have emerged to restructure faculties, decolonize curricula, invest in equity, and end the biases that, as the National Organization of Minority Architects has put it, “prevent people of color from entering into and thriving in the profession of architecture.” We’ve been heartened by the students, educators, schools, designers, firms, professional bodies, museums, and organizations that have shared resources to help guide us, in education and in practice, to do better.

As we continue to grapple with our own efforts, we’ve begun to collect the books, articles, letters, statements, manifestos, and syllabi we have been inspired by in this reading list, which we hope will become an ongoing record of resources on anti-racism in design.

Because we want this to be a living and up-to-date document, we invite you to share your recommendations for further additions. Contact us at [email protected]
