New Streaming Media Guide: Anti-racist Films

The UCI Libraries stand firmly in opposition to racism and racial violence. In an effort to highlight marginalized voices, the UCI Libraries created a new streaming media guide on anti-racist films highlighting many film and documentary resources. This streaming content explores issues of civil rights and unrest, mass incarceration, racism and white privilege, and policing in the United States. To stream movies and documentaries, login with your UCInetID.

In addition, the UCI Libraries continue to add to the ebook collection in OverDrive: Understanding and Combatting Racism. To access this collection, login with your UCInetID to read ebooks online, download titles to your device or read on your Kindle or e-reader. Click here for more information.

The UCI Libraries are dedicated to purchasing a wide variety of award-winning titles that relate to the topic of diversity. Click here to explore the diversity of UCI Libraries’ collections.
