Quote from UWG Student

 "I hadn’t heard about the “Black Lives Matter” movement until this past spring, while we were in lockdown for the COVID pandemic. To see that (one of these books) was published nearly 5 years ago was eye-opening to me. It shames me to think this has been ignored for so long. (These resources) could be helpful in opening up lines of discussion on the topic."
