Systemic Racism: Making Liberty, Justice, and Democracy Real

This volume identifies some of the remaining gaps in extanttheories of systemic racism, and in doing so, illuminates pathsforward. The contributors explore topics such as the enduringhyper-criminalization of blackness, the application of the whiteracial frame, and important counter-frames developed by people ofcolor. They also assess how African Americans and other Americansof color understand the challenges they face in white-dominatedenvironments. Additionally, the book includes analyses of digitallyconstructed blackness on social media as well as case studies ofsystemic racism within and beyond U.S. borders. This research ispresented in honor of Kimberley Ducey's and Ruth Thompson-Miller'steacher, mentor, and friend: Joe R. Feagin.
