Cambridge University Press has made a number of books covering racism, injustice and discrimination free to the public to enable people to educate themselves in light of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The organisation’s decision follows the worldwide protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd in Minnesota, USA. Black Lives Matter protests have erupted all over the world, including across the UK. There have been a number of BLM demonstrations in Enfield over the last few weeks.
In order to enable the public to educate themselves on these very real issues, Cambridge University Press has made a number of articles, books and chapters of books available to the public for free until July 12th.
On their website they write: "The current protest and unrest in the United States has highlighted the corrosive effects of racism, discrimination and injustice. These things have no place in societies and by standing together we can be part of the solution.
"One of the most important things that we can do as a publisher is not just voice outrage, but provide research and data to inform progress. That’s why we are providing access to this collection featuring complimentary journal articles, book chapters and for a limited time, complete books".
