This Health Humanities Portrait, Reading the Racial Politics of Guns in America, explores the contested politics of American firearms. It addresses the complex tensions of race relations, health and injury, and the lethal consequences of gun ownership. The portrait allows students to think critically about the various justifications for gun ownership, the role stereotypes play in those justifications, and the larger implications gun policies have on public health and individual health.
