Racial Justice Resource Guide: SYSTEMIC RACISM

SYSTEMIC RACISM RESOURCES

Systemic Racism is practiced in social and political institutions and areas such as criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, education, and the political arena. Minorities and people of color have been disproportionately impacted by systemic racism. 

  • Origins of Racism can be traced to the beliefs of the superiority of White people over indigenous peoples and people of color, creating systems of oppression through slavery and colonialism. Explore the books and resources on these issues.

  • Contemporary Issues and Racial Identities involve cultural expressions within racial communities, perspectives on the dynamics of systemic racism, racial and ethnic identities, privilege, and power.
