Anti Racism--Anti Oppression Resource Guide: Home


“In a racist society, it is not enough to not be non-racist, we must be anti-racist” -- Angela Davis.


This guide exists to support ISU faculty, staff and students who are working to enhance their knowledge of racism, social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. It works to provide information to people from all racial and ethnic groups, gender orientations, sexual identities, abilities and ages to deepen their understanding of oppression. 

This guide is by no means an exhaustive list of anti-oppressive materials nor does it capture all of the many facets of the larger conversations about the issues listed here. It serves as an introduction to these issues and as a starting place for finding information from a variety of sources by highlighting a some of the resources in the Cunningham Memorial Library's (CML) collection. Historical and divisive biases shape the world. To overcome these biases, we all have a  role of in working to create a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive society. Education is an important and necessary step to becoming anti-racists. But, knowing better is only a start. I'ts in what we do, based in what we learn, that we change the world. 

Each page on this guide contains curated resources. Each of the books mention is available in the CML. The page also contains action based resources to begin the work to alleviate oppression.
