This guide is intended as a starting point for research on Antiracism with a focus on sources that are available at Rutgers. It is a work in progress and will be updated regularly as new sources are identified and/or become available.
Antiracism is the practice of identifying, challenging, and changing the values, structures and behaviors that perpetuate systemic racism.
Due to the closures of the building, only items currently available online are shown. List will be expanded when physical collections are available. Listing in alphabetical order by title.
