Anti-Oppression: Anti-Racism

This libguide provides resources to combat oppression.

Introduction

This guide provides resources to those who wish to learn about and combat oppression of various kinds in our society. This is not a comprehensive guide.

Anti-oppression work does not happen alone. This guide would not be possible without Amanda Broyles, Danielle Costello, and Crystal Miller.  

If there are resources you would like to recommend for the guide or if there are resources that are problematic, please contact Robert Griggs (rngriggs@valdosta.edu).

What is Anti-Racism?

"Being antiracist is fighting against racism. Racism takes several forms and works most often in tandem with at least one other form to reinforce racist ideas, behavior, and policy. Types of racism are: Individual racism...interpersonal racism...institutional racism...structural racism...No one is born racist or antiracist; these result from the choices we make."
