Institutional racism played a key role in Americas beginnings, and it is still present today, although it has taken different form. In housing, health care, education, employment, policing, and more, systemic racism perpetuates inequality and puts African Americans at a disadvantage. This book shows what systemic racism looks like today and discusses efforts aimed at altering this dynamic.
