Summary

The social and cultural inclusion for Black and Brown people continues to be one of the pressing concerns in the 21st century. This path breaking collection of works in Contemporary Debates in Social Justice encourages a multi-discipline approach to examining the existing societal injustices affecting Black and Brown communities across the United States.

 

In its exploration of Black and Brown life, this book considers issues of health, political, criminal justice, and educational inequalities. It takes a unique approach by offering essays, empirical studies, and interviews from a range of scholars, community activists, and practitioners who are on the front line of addressing social and cultural injustices. These diverse insights into such injustices illuminate new ways of understanding the complexity of Black and Brown communities.
