This reading list is a culmination of work done by scholars Dr. Sujith Xavier (University of Windsor), Professor Dhaman Kissoon (Queen’s University), and Ms. Simi Solebo (JD MBA Candidate 2021, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University), whose teaching and research in the area of race and law forms the basis for the Canadian legal materials listed.

The focus of the guide is to allow users to find legal materials regarding Anti-Black Racism in the Canadian context.

 Special thank you to the following University of Windsor law students in compiling the list: Hannah Thackeray, Alana Bujeya, Mallory Allan, Robert Carnevale, Jocelyn Fritz, Justin Di Camillo, and Rushi Chakrabarti.

Organizers: Yemisi Dina (York University), Amy Kaufman (Queen’s University), Vicki Leung (University of Windsor). We welcome your suggestions for other resources to include in this living document. Please send them to Amy Kaufman (kaufman[at]queensu[dot]ca).
