Abstract

This past year brought the deadliest pandemic of our time and a huge social awakening and movement for racial justice. It became clear to me in late spring that I needed to learn more about structural racism, White supremacy, racial healthcare disparities, unconscious bias, and my own prejudices that govern my attitudes, values, behaviors, and decisions as a nurse leader, faculty member, board member, and a human being. To that end, I began to read, watch, and listen to both scholarly and lay journals and media that provide historical and current empirical accounts and studies of how racism and White supremacy have dominated our society, organizations, and communities in the United States for hundreds of years.
