The purpose of this guide is to provide accurate relevant, and though-provoking information to support students, faculty, and staff learning or teaching about issues surrounding the killing of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis, MN on May 25, 2020. In the aftermath of Floyd's death, protests and other racial justice efforts are demanding accountibility for systemic racism within the criminal justice system and calling for police reform. This page will be updated to include new reports and analyses as events unfold. 

This guide is a collaborative project between the Multicultural Resource Center and University Library. A Wakelet version with additional readings is also available. If you have an additional resource to contribute, please contact Melissa Prescott.
