A Note About Bias

Academia is, and always has been, biased in favor of White, CIS gender, men. This includes scholarly research.

The search tools that we all use, including databases and web search engines, reinforce that bias.  As a result, extra effort (e.g. searching the internet for more information about an author or making sure your search terms are inclusive) is required of students and faculty alike to discover and highlight the work of scholars of color and research that includes people of color. 

Additionally, two CSULB Library Faculty created a research guide with resources "that center critical scholarship on the social, political, cultural and economic conditions of African Americans and other oppressed communities of color."
