This guide includes these and other free, high quality resources across a broad spectrum of topics and a variety of viewpoints and formats. While this guide is primarily a resource for our students conducting research on racism and antiracism, it's also for everyone else who wants to learn, engage and take action on their own journey toward being an antiracist.   

 

This guide is a starting point, a work in progress and is in no way comprehensive. We hope you'll check back often. 

We also invite you to suggest additional resources for inclusion.

Featured Book: How to Be an Antiracist

The opposite of "racist" isn’t "not racist." It is "antiracist." — Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist
