Resources discussing the role workplaces, business, and investing have in systemic racism and inequality

Systemic racism and racial / social inequity is easy to pass off as a topic for Sociology, Ethnic Studies or Politics. But every academic and professional discipline has a responsibility to face these issues; Business leading among them. The resources below are just a sampling of works published and available from the Library on issues related to racial disparities of wealth and power. This is a work in progress. This is not meant to be comprehensive and almost certainly reflects blind spots, oversights, and resources with some flaws. (See the Educating Ourselves about Whiteness and Anti-Black Racism guide for resources that have been helpful to us librarians—none of whom are Black—in starting to understand whiteness, white privilege, and anti-Black racism in general.)
