Across the world right now, questions of freedom, citizenship, and human rights are reverberating. Race and racism are now central to many of these conversations, found in everyday instances of lived experience and embedded in societies and institutions as a whole. This month, we’ve compiled recommendations that speak to the experience of racism and the insider-outsider paradigm. We have chosen fiction, nonfiction, memoir, and poetry that talk of immigration and race in many of its forms. We find these books illuminating, at times heartbreaking and hopeful. We hope you like them too. Find our recommendations here.
