A group of Elon Law faculty, staff and students is sharing on a monthly basis what members are reading and watching as part of a desire to engage in important discussions on topics related to race and history.
Members of the Elon Law faculty, in coordination with several staff and students, have organized their efforts in recent months to discuss the role of educators and mentors in creating a more equitable and inclusive community at Elon Law.
One of the first initiatives of the Antiracism Working Group is focused on sharing with the broader community what members are reading and watching related to issues of equity and inclusion, and to invite the Elon Law community to engage in discussions on those topics.
For the month of November, members are currently reading, watching, or listening to materials that reflect the observance of National Native American Heritage Month:
- “This Land” podcast series produced by Crooked Media
- An Indigenous People’s History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
- Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann
- Menominee DRUMS: Tribal Termination and Restoration 1954-1974 by Nicholas C. Peroff
- Defend the Sacred: Native American Religious Freedom beyond the First Amendment by Michael McNally
