Race and Racism: A Resource Guide

Books and articles that explore racism and race relations

Scope of Libguide

This libguide is meant to be a starting point for general information or research topics related to the subjects of race and racism. It is certainly not an exhaustive list, and if you have other resource suggestions please send them to or


The notion of race and issues with racism have been around for a long time, but have certainly been highlighted in recent years for a variety of reasons. We tried to be inclusive of the often shared but also different experiences of various ethnicities, races, and cultures in America and around the world when compiling this list. Each page contains eBooks, articles, print books, videos, and other sources of information regarding its topic or sub-topic. Many pages also contains instructions to search for additional sources of information using the OneSearch box on our library home page. 

Additional Research Help

Visit the Fullerton College Library website. There, you can search for additional sources of information using the OneSearch box (which will search all databases as well as the online library catalog). You can also email, text, or chat with a librarian online. If you would like more extensive research help, book a librarian for a 30 minute one on one research consultation. We are here to help with any of your research needs!

Many of the topics found in the pages here are broad and would need to be narrowed down into a more manageable research question. Watch the video below to learn how to narrow your research topic or go to the Research Topic Ideas page to see examples of possible research topics related to the subjects of race and racism.
