Anti-Racism Resource Guide

Disclaimer: This is intended for use as a resource guide. Departments and Libraries throughout Tufts University have made or are planning to make respective statements separate from this guide.

Description of this Guide

This guide is a list of resources about contextualizing, documenting, and addressing racism in the health sciences. Students, clinicians, and researchers in medicine, dentistry, nutrition, public health, and biomedical sciences at Tufts University and Tufts Medical Center are the intended audience, though others may find this guide useful. Many, but not all, resources listed here are academic books and articles. Because this resource guide is intended for the Tufts University and Tufts Medicine communities, most of the included resources require Tufts credentials to obtain access through Tufts libraries.

This guide was created by Hirsh Health Sciences Library staff in 2020, during cycles of activism in the Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate movements and widespread societal reckoning with racism in the United States. The guide is currently maintained by Christina Heinrich. Contact me with comments, questions, and additional resources on a topic encompassed in this guide.
