How to Be an Antiracist: Home


Welcome to the How to Be an Antiracist Research Guide. This guide began as a continuation of a 2019 campus reading and discussion group sponsored by the English Department, the Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity, and Waidner-Spahr Library.

This guide provides recommendations for a variety of resources to support those actively working to end racism in all its forms.

Many resources are available digitally at the library, but for those that are not, consider asking your local public library about possibilities for access, or visit the Library Services Updates guide for pickup options.
