Recommended Reading for the Week: “Racism” by Dr. Selena T. Rodgers

The Intraracial Colorism Project, Inc.’s  recommend reading for the week is an article titled  Racism written by Dr. Selena T. Rodgers, LCSW-R,  an assistant professor of Social Work at the City University of New York, York College and a Fulbright Specialist designation from the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Brief Abstract

“The article gives a historical sketch of racism, followed by examples of its contemporary indicators—throughout social institutions—in the United States.” (Rodgers, 2015).

In light of the plethora of social ills involving racism as a constant, the article is timely, enlightening, and much-needed.  According to Dr. Rodgers (2015), “racism is pervasive, endemic, and historically rooted in systematic assumptions inherent in superiority based on race and requires the critical attention of all social workers.”

To read the article, please visit the Encyclopedia of Social Work .
