Description


Racism has no place in the world, and everyone knows it's not okay. Why, then, is racism still a part of peoples' experiences? Why are protests and demonstrations happening? Why is there even a conversation about "Black lives matter"? Racism is not a partisan issue, and this is not a political book-it's a history book. The fact is that racism has been built into the very foundations this country was built on; from employment to housing and education to criminal justice. A (very brief) History of Systemic Racism looks at hundreds of years of institutional and structural racism, breaking it down into a concise series of events, laws, restrictions, policies, and practices that have led to where we are today. The journey toward anti-racism begins by arming yourself with information and understanding the history of oppression, inequity, and inequality of Black people in the U.S., and this book will give you a strong basal knowledge of systemic racism in this country.
