Selected Readings for the Public Health Classroom

This compilation of readings was prepared in the summer of 2020 following the murder of George Floyd and the piqued interest in incorporating anti-racist praxis into the institutions in which we live, work, and study. Many staff and faculty are attuned to the needs of this work and aim to center their research, teaching, and activism in ways that bring our communities closer to the goal of health equity.
Still, there is work to be done by all of us, even those of us who practice anti-racism on a daily basis. There has been student interest in classes on racism as well as faculty request for guidance on aligning course material and research practice with an anti-racist lens. In order to help meet these interests, we curated a selection of readings for students, staff, and faculty in public health.
