Diversity and Inclusion Reading List

In an effort to stand in solidarity with the people all across North America opposing racism against black people, the Book Publishers Association of Alberta (BPAA) and the Writers’ Guild of Alberta (WGA) have assembled a reading list of relevant books, articles, and essays.

We are committed to working towards greater inclusivity within our industries through fair representation of Black, Indigenous, and other racialized people, and to amplifying and listening to voices that have too often been silenced.

If you are a teacher who would like to incorporate titles that highlight figures and experiences from BIPOC communities, you can find Alberta-published books that have been mapped to the provincial curriculum at ABBooksForSchools.ca. Many of the titles on the list below are featured there.
