Anti-Black Racism: History, Ideology, and Resistance - Oakland Campus

Authors' Statement

This resource guide has been authored primarily by a group of White librarians and archivists at ULS, with some advisory by Black colleagues. We acknowledge our positions of privilege and the subjectivity inherent in our perspectives. We acknowledge the anti-racist work done by Black scholars at the University of Pittsburgh for years, especially those in Africana Studies, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion who have influenced our thinking. We take responsibility for activating our consciousness and leveling-up our own learning as we stand in solidarity with our Black students, colleagues, and community members. Requests, comments, and input about the LibGuide are welcome as part of this process. Thank you.
