Conversations About Global Racial Injustice

Friday, 26 June 2020

The global wave of protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd reminds us that we live in times of continuing racial injustice. As a publisher, we believe that books are uniquely able to help inform public consciousness and understanding – so this summer we are posting a series of extracts from works that explore our society, share different perspectives and take lessons from the past.  You can read the Association of University Presses Statement on Equity and Anti-Racism here.

You can find our blog posts - Conversations About Global Racial Injustice - here.
The first post takes extracts from three books that explore the history of slavery, beginning with Chapter 5 of My Bondage and My Freedom by Frederick Douglass.
