Resources for Response

Decker Library and others on MICA's campus have compiled resources for learning about our city and ideas + contacts for participation

The Decker Library is adding to the resources for response compiled for the MICA community by creating a list of books, videos and other media, and articles available through the Library that can help people to understand the current and historical situation in the city of Baltimore.

Included are books on the history and sociology of Baltimore, and biography, fiction and poetry; feature and documentary movies; and articles from journals and newspapers. Our listing was inspired by a blog post shared by the Eisenhower Library at Johns Hopkins University.

Books and videos from this list are displayed at the Circulation Desk in the Library, and available for check-out.  And Mary Alessi '09  has created a white board drawing to call out some of the "Charm City Cinema" that is available. Click here to view our resource list:

Other resources shared by groups at MICA include:
Artists Responding! Resource List -- MICA's Office of Community Engagement: A resource list to specifically promote and support arts-based activity occurring in response to the current collective action and unrest in Baltimore. Please add to it and share it will others who are engaging in arts-based actions.

MICA Resource Document -- MICA's Office of Community Engagement: Contains information and links to meetings and events that are happening throughout the city, calls for participation, and information about long-standing community organizations that you may want to consider getting involved with. Additionally, there is a section of links to articles, TED Talks, radio programs, and books which may help provide a broader frame work for the history of race, class, and privilege in our city and our country. We know this list is not exhaustive so please feel free to add and share!

... and please let us in the Decker Library know if you know of others, and we will add them to this post.
