Anti-Racist Resources

The Anti-Racist Resources for Teaching & Learning guide identifies resources available from the NDSU Libraries and online to support faculty, staff, and student self-education. The guide contains resources to assist instructors in the classroom, as well as resources covering issues at the intersection of race and higher education. The guide also presents a variety of resources aimed at a general audience interested in learning more about topics including history, theory, Black feminism, first person narratives, and public health. 

This guide is presented in partnership with the NDSU Anti-Racism Coalition. Members of the NDSU community interested in suggesting additional resources can contact Al Bernardo, Social Sciences Librarian, at alfred.bernardo@ndsu.edu
