(BnL) National Library of Luxembourg’s selection of works on the topic of racism

Black Lives Matter is an international human rights movement, originating from within the African-American community, which campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people.

The movement is an inarguable demand for justice, equality, and reform. BLM goes beyond spreading awareness, and calls everyone to take direct action in honor of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others.

Below, you’ll find resources that the National Library of Luxembourg has collated. The purpose of this is to self educate and inform oneself with a selection of documents. These resources help to better understand the different facets of this crucial theme, to (re)act and to finally stand together.

Institutionalized racism, racial profiling or individual racist acts, racism affects not just the lives of the BAME community today, but also our generations to come.
