Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at ECU: Learn

Take A Step Toward Equity & Justice

Learning about the issues surrounding equity and justice is a lifelong journey that may seem overwhelming at first.
This page will help guide you into that journey, one step at a time. 

Finding DEI Resources



Books, Films, TV

Read stories or watch films and TV series written by people in marginalized communities. To find recommendations for books:

  • Search #OwnVoices and #WeNeedDiverseBooks
  • Check out book awards and book lists that recognize diversity, like We Need Diverse Books
  • Reading lists that challenge traditional canon, such as #DisruptTexts
  • See the Library Resources page on this guide.
  • Talk to a librarian!



Informational & News Media

  • Read non-fiction texts written from diverse perspectives
  • Search for diverse content in your field by adding the words "multicultural perspective" or "critical pedagogy" to the name of your discipline. For example, "critical pedagogy history" or "multicultural perspective sociology".
  • Search for general non-fiction texts with terms like "race relations", "social justice", "inequality", "anti-racism", or "oppression". 
  • Consume news and media authored by marginalized communities. Search for the name of the marginalized community + news, for example "Native American news".
