Resisting Racism is an exhibit in Odegaard Library and the Research Commons (on display through December 31, 2017) that asks two questions: what is white supremacy? And how do people resist it?
This research guide provides print and digital sources around resisting racism. From art and fiction to scholarly journals and web videos, there are many ways folks from all communities are resisting racism.
We invite you to discover new books and resources in both the Odegaard Library and the Research Commons.

And it began with a commitment: that together we would combat the racism and inequities, both individual and institutional, that persist here and throughout our society.
