“Middlebury Abroad Resources to support the work of non-Black students, faculty, and staff in learning to better understand anti-black racism, how it shows up in our communities, and how to work to combat it."

The following list of resources was created to support the work of our non-Black students, staff, and faculty in learning to better understand anti-Black racism, how it shows up in our communities, and how to work to combat it. The first section is specifically for non-Black people of color and the rest of the sections are for all non-Black members of our campus community (although some of the resources in the latter sections are specifically for white people).
