This page helps connect the Trinity College and Hartford communities with resources to learn more about anti-racism. As other guides note, this is not a comprehensive list of resources to learn more about anti-racism. We do not endorse a particular resource, but want to provide a diverse set of resources for consideration. Also note that some resources might include language and perspectives that might be uncomfortable to some. We encourage you to find discussion partners as you engage with the materials.
