Anti-Asian/Asian American history in the United States: Home

This is a guide in response to current and past instances of anti-Asian activity in the United States. This guide is a work in progress.

From the TCC Library

The TCC library condemns anti-Asian and anti-Asian American/Pacific Islander violence and rhetoric. We stand by our staff, students, and faculty who identify as Asian, Asian American, and/or Pacific Islander and will not tolerate instances of hate and violence whether within Library spaces or across our wider campus community. We remind everyone that your TCC Library has extensive information resources to help better understand and combat anti-Asian, and anti-AAPI activities.
