Liberation Library

The Adams Liberation Library is a weekly set of resources distributed to Adams House through the House newsletter. The Liberation Library is a collaboration between the Adams House Race Relations and HoCo to offer resources for learning more about the ongoing struggles for freedom for marginalized peoples, starting with anti-Black racism in the U.S. The idea emerged from the House solidarity Zoom call following the protests and unrest that demanded change after the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many more.
