Social Justice Syllabus

Social Justice Syllabus

In Fall 2020, Drexel Magazine "asked faculty members who are conducting relevant scholarship to suggest one work from their area of expertise that illustrates the issues compelling calls for an end to systemic racism. Among them are professors of all races doing scholarship in justice reform, data bias, health disparities, identity and workplace discrimination, among related fields. They drew from their course material, their research or their personal readings to help us understand the moment and, hopefully, to grow from it."

Social Justice Syllabus, written by Sonja Sherwood and illustrated by Diana Ejaita, compiles the list of essays, books, movies and videos with thoughtful commentary on their importance.

Provided below are the lists of readings and other material identified by Drexel scholars, linking to the sources in Drexel Libraries' collections and elsewhere.
