CMA Digital Library 

What is it?

The CMA Digital Library (CDL) is an online resource created and maintained by our staff that pertains to social justice issues related to race and ethnicity. This library includes news articles, academic articles, books, podcasts, videos, and other forms of digital media. 

Who is it for?

The CDL is primarily for students, faculty, and staff at Eastern Michigan University (EMU), as some of our resources do require an EMU NetID login. Although, people who are not  part of the EMU community cannot access all of the resources here, we still encourage people to use this page as a starting point to help them find resources.

Why does this exist?

The phrase “Google is free” is often said in social justice circles when we talk about people educating themselves, yet that could be problematic as it may be difficult to recognize which is a reliable source. This library exists as tool for those who have questions about movements such as the Black Lives Matter movement, or any other question pertaining to social justice issues related to race and ethnicity. 

Contact us!

We would love to hear any questions, comments, concerns, suggestions, or other feedback you have for the CDL. The CDL is ever growing and we would love to hear community suggestions for what should be included. Please send us an email at cma_dci@emich.edu and mention “CDL” in the subject line so that we can make sure to read it and respond.
