In “Dismantling Institutional Whiteness,” editors M. Cristina Alcalde, PhD, and Mangala Subramaniam, PhD, investigate the reasons why women of color are underrepresented in higher education leadership roles. Featuring first-person narratives of women of color along with original research, the book asserts the importance of giving voice to leaders with intersectional identities who can champion lasting change at their institutions. Included throughout are suggestions for how college and university administrators can address inequities and help diversify higher education leadership.

More than three years after its initial publication in The New York Times Magazine, “The 1619 Project” continues to examine the impact of slavery and racism in the U.S. through this new six-part documentary series. The groundbreaking project takes new life in this visual format by spotlighting the personal story of its creator, Nikole Hannah-Jones, as she interviews historians, politicians, activists, and other cultural figures. Each episode focuses on a specific theme — capitalism, democracy, fear, justice, music, and race — that represents the experiences of African Americans throughout the nation’s history.
