The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre was founded specifically to combat racist ideas. The Centre provides a wide range of resources aimed at encouraging self confidence and pride in black and ethnic minority people and equipping all communities with the information and knowledge to resist racist appeals. We have books, videos, journals, CDRoms, posters, interview transcripts and ephemeral material.

The Resource Centre is in the unique position of providing access to resources concerned with race and related issues in one collection. Its range of published and non-published material has made it an invaluable and alternative source for academics, primary and secondary educators, school children, community groups and local independent researchers.
