Overview

In this comprehensive volume, facts about racism are presented in their contemporary social context. Racism is defined as a current, prevalent, and systemic problem and further defined within the context of social media. As a community issue, those affected by racism can find solutions such as support and healing from racism-induced trauma as well as empowerment to effect progressive change. Common myths about racism are dispelled and questions to ask specialists or experts are just two features of this book dedicated to educating today's youth about an issue that continues to plague society.
