Systemic Racism 101
A Visual History of the Impact of Racism in America
Table of Contents
About The Book
From reparations to the prison industrial complex and redlining, there are a lot of high-level concepts to systemic racism that are hard to digest. At a time where everyone is inundated with information on structural racism, it can be hard to know where to start or how to visualize the disenfranchisement of BIPOC Americans.
In Systemic Racism 101, you will find infographic spreads alongside explanatory text to help you visualize and truly understand societal, economic, and structural racism—along with what we can do to change it. Starting from the discovery of America in 1492, through the Civil Rights movement, all the way to the criminal justice reform today, this book has everything you need to know about the continued fight for equality.
Why We Love It
“Systemic Racism 101 takes the incredibly dense and difficult topic of racism in America and uses infographics, visuals, and illustrations to make—what’s frankly—an almost impossible to understand concept into something everyday people can understand. In this current moment, it feels like we’re being inundated with all kinds of information on racism since America’s inception. There’s so information that it can be hard to take it all in, not to mention react, educate others about it, or take action. I love this book because it makes what can be, at times, an overwhelming subject, into something simple, easily digestible, and actionable with suggestions on how to combat racism at the local level and how to lead an anti-racist life.”
