The protests initiated in June of 2020 have expressed the anger and anguish experienced by those who experience racism and discrimination around the world and have initiated a global discussion about anti-racism and social justice. CERCLL shares in the chorus of voices that have risen up to publicly condemn the physical and symbolic forms of violence directed at those who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color. As a National Language Resource Center whose mission is to promote the integration of languages, literacies, and intercultural perspectives, we are committed to addressing the forms of inequity, racism, and discrimination that too often are left unexamined in that work. In order to do better ourselves and as a means of inviting others to join us, we are compiling a set of resources for language and culture educators. This includes a wide range of materials to read, watch, and listen to, which will help teachers to think about how anti-racist pedagogy might inform their practices. Some of these are focused on teaching more generally, but we also wish to promote materials directed at language and culture educators specifically. We have chosen to highlight Black scholars and other scholars of color, but we are also including links to some related resource pages that include a wider range of sources.  

This list is by no means comprehensive. If you know of additional resources or you yourself have created or published something you would like to share, please reach out to us at
