The Indianapolis Public Library will offer e-books, audiobooks and videos that will help patrons explore issues about race and racial equity.

Titles include The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander and "So You Want to Talk About Race" by Ijeoma Oluo.

Popular titles usually have a waitlist for e-book versions, but some publishers and content providers are offering libraries the high-demand content through July.

Available documentaries include I Am Not Your Negro and Race: The Power of an Illusion.

All titles are available for free with the use of a library card at indypl.org.

Since 1895, The Indianapolis Recorder has been a major voice for our local community, the state of Indiana, our nation, and now internationally. From the beginning, the Recorder has been an advocate for those who could not express their thoughts or concerns; we've also been a supplier of truth and justice.
