The 21-day challenge is an opportunity to:
Unlearning your biases is an incredibly difficult task. You cannot become an anti-racist just by deciding you are one. We hope that the topics here will challenge and inspire you. Proceed with an open mind when you see an activity that might be at odds with your beliefs. Those may be the ones that spark the greatest change.
The 21-Day Challenge is a powerful opportunity to gain perspective and self-awareness surrounding racial inequality in our country. By engaging in one learning opportunity each day for 21-days we hope you will feel moved to take action to improve equity and inclusion in our communities.
Every day has a theme and lists several options for reading, listening or watching. Choose at least one activity per day, but feel free to explore more.
Record your activities in the progress tracker document. This step is optional but can help you stay on course and help you remember which activities you participated in should you choose to explore more.

Take the Challenge as a group with your department, office, team or friends. The Memorial Library Anti-Racism Team created a handy guide to get your started.
