Anti-Racist Resources

This guide is designed to share anti-racist resources and expand anti-racism work within Highline College and our community.


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

"An antiracist is someone who is supporting an antiracist policy through their actions or expressing antiracist ideas. This includes the expression or ideas that racial groups are equals and do not need developing, and supporting policies that reduce racial inequality."

- Ibram X. Kendi, How to be an Antiracist

Racist: "One who is supporting a racist policy through their actions or interaction or expressing a racist idea."

- Ibram X. Kendi, How to be an Antiracist


This guide recognizes and gratefully appreciates the ongoing work done by anti-racism activists and librarians, including former Highline College Reference Librarian Sam Sermeno, the Seattle Public Library, and Dr. Nicole A. Cooke. This guide draws upon their work and provides credit wherever possible.

Highline College Librarians have also developed resource guides for Self-Care and Racial Trauma, as well as on Trauma-Informed Practices.
