What antiracism activities is Harvard Library involved with?
Advancing equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and antiracism is one of the core values of Harvard Library. You can read about our commitment to antiracism on our “About Harvard Library” page.
Among our recent initiatives is the website Confronting Anti-Black Racism. This site curates Harvard research and resources on the history of racism in the United States and its impact on Black communities. Our goal is to introduce and explore a continuous knowledge loop of scholarship, library resources, and real-world experiences of Black Americans.
Resources on the site are currently focused on three main topics: Public Health, Scientific Racism, and Criminal Justice. More topics will be added in the future. For each topic there are selected relevant articles, audiovisual material and/or data. Comments about the page should be emailed to: HL_ABRTeam@harvard.edu.
In observation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, our services will be unavailable on Monday, January 18. There may be a slight delay in our responses to inquiries received over the weekend. If you're experiencing an ongoing technical issue when you attempt to access library materials with your HarvardKey, please report it to Library Technology Services.
Chat is intended for brief inquiries from the Harvard community.
