Stay Woke book cover

We are at a critical moment in American history, with a long-present and swiftly-growing mass movement dedicated to eradicating racism and enacting criminal justice reform impacting all spaces of American life. In the UVM Libraries, we recognize the strong interest many people have now in reading and learning, and we want to help you connect with the resources in our collection, particularly at a time when they are hard to come by elsewhere.
