book with a raised solidarity fist sculpted into it

Advocates, activists and artists in solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities, we need you! The Solidarity Book Project is a collaborative artwork that calls for solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities. The project creates space for community and solidarity through book knowledge, inviting everyone to consider what solidarity means and how they can express it in their lives. By participating in our social media challenges over the next year, you can stand in solidarity and raise funds for Black and Indigenous communities.

We Invite You to Participate!

Social Media Challenge #1: Solidarity Reflection

Record a video of yourself responding to the question, “What does Solidarity mean to you?” and share it on your social media using the hashtags #SolidarityReflection and #SolidarityBook. Don’t forget to tag a friend to nominate them to participate!

After you record video, please share it with us via our webform.

Sonya Clark on the Solidarity Book Project

Hear artist Sonya Clark, Amherst College Professor of Art and the History of Art, talk about the project, its meaning and how you can get involved. Read more about Professor Clark in her faculty profile.

This work acknowledges what still needs to be done to reckon with our complicity in Indigenous oppression, systemic racism and anti-Blackness through art, activism and restorative justice.”
—Sonya Clark
