Additional Book Details

The authors are proud sponsors of the 2020 SAGE Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award—enabling graduate students and early career faculty to attend the annual ASA pre-conference teaching and learning workshop.

The Matrix of Race: Social Construction, Intersectionality, and Inequality is a textbook that makes race and racial inequality "visible" in new ways to all students in race/ethnic relations courses, regardless of their backgrounds–from minorities who have experienced the impact of race in their own lives to members of dominant groups who might believe that we now live in a "color blind" society. The "matrix" refers to a way of thinking about race that reflects the intersecting, multilayered identities of contemporary society, and the powerful social institutions that shape our understanding of race. Its goals are to help readers get beyond familiar "us vs. them" arguments that can lead to resistance and hostility; promote self-appraisal; and stimulate more productive discussions about race and racism.
