“Decolonizing research and data is a crucial part of realizing systemic change for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.” - Coalition of Communities of Color
The Collective: A BIPOC ThinkIR initiative aims to uplift BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) faculty and staff at the University of Louisville by highlighting their research and providing open-access to BIPOC-produced scholarship through our institutional repository. By featuring a BIPOC scholars research collection in our institutional repository, we hope to encourage scholars of all disciplines to intentionally seek out the research and scholarship of their colleagues of color.
“We use the term BIPOC to highlight the unique relationship to whiteness that Indigenous and Black (African Americans) people have, which shapes the experiences of and relationship to white supremacy for all people of color within a U.S. context in order to undo Native invisibility, anti-Blackness, dismantle white supremacy and advance racial justice.” - The BIPOC Project
We welcome participation from all historically underrepresented groups. To learn more about the project and be added to the collection, please visit: https://library.louisville.edu/thinkir/bipoc
