The Encyclopedia of Race & Racism

Edited by John Hartwell Moore and published in 2008 by The Gale Group, this resource is a remarkable find and worth the investment.  It is intended to be a “one- stop reference” for both high school and college students interested in learning more about race and racism and covers a wide range of the social sciences.  Here are links to printable PDF versions of volumes 1, 2 and 3.  Or, you could just purchase a copy.

  1. Whoa. I just downloaded volume 1 and saw page 42.

    “Punishment Aboard a British Slave Ship. George Cruikshank’s 1792 engraving, titled The Abolition of the Slave Trade, shows Captain John Kimber preparing to whip a female slave for refusing to dance naked on the ship. The abolitionist William Wilberforce brought the matter to Parliament and Kimber was arrested and tried for causing the girl’s death. The High Court of Admiralty acquitted him, however, ascribing the girl’s death to disease. THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.”

    This humiliating treatment – up to death – is still occurring in the U.S. now in 2013.

    Being asked to “STOP!” and “Spread your legs!” while the frisking takes place is the humiliation.
    The deaths are Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Emmett Till, and on and on > https://sites.google.com/site/getgln/human-rights/oppression-monitor

    People are also dying a slow death in the prison industrial complex for minor drug offenses, while U.S. war criminals are walking free.
