Starting Your Research

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.

Research on Antiracism is interdisciplinary and this guide is a general introduction. For further assistance with more specific resources contact a Subject Librarian or see our Research Guides.
