Diversity Resources and Support

The Stan Getz Library (150 Massachusetts Avenue) and the Albert Alphin Library (8 Fenway), along with the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, developed a new collection of books focused specifically on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The collection includes diverse intellectual approaches, incorporating not only sociological and historical writings, but various literary genres that complement academic research, ranging from novels, short stories, poetry, music biographies, memoirs and other literary works that address topics around race, gender, class, disability, heritage, and other sociocultural identities.  

This collection is available on an honor system to anyone, with no checkout or due date required. Additionally, patrons can leave a review of books they read and make recommendations for additional titles to the collection. 

Below, you will also find some recommendations for pleasure reading, watching, and/or listening. In addition, read Berklee’s Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s statement on anti-Black sentiment, bias, discrimination, oppression, and the need to combat these behaviors within our communities and browse resources on these topics.
