Drawing from over 2 decades of research, this book offers an in-depth analysis of a systemic form of everyday racism commonly experienced by People of Color. Racial microaggressions are layered and cumulative assaults, often carried out in subtle and unconscious ways, which take a psychological and physiological toll on the body, mind, and spirit. The authors make a unique contribution to the study of racial microaggressions by using Critical Race Theory (CRT) to develop the concepts, frameworks, and models provided in this book. Focusing on the lived experiences of People of Color, Racial Microaggressions can be used to disrupt the everyday racism that continues to target so many Communities of Color.

Book Features:

  • Theoretical, conceptual, and pedagogical tools to help all people recognize, respond to, and challenge racial microaggressions.
  • An interdisciplinary approach that draws from the fields of education, law, policy, ethnic studies, Women of Color feminisms, sociology, history, theatre, psychology, and public health.
  • Visual examples of racial microaggressions in historical and contemporary life.
