LaQuette’s Resource List


LaQuette was kind enough to let us host a list of resources from her Critical Lens course. These videos, articles, and books will help you read more critically about race and LGBTQIA+ topics.

RSJ may earn money from affiliate links. All money will be used to fund giveaways of books by underrepresented authors.
