An Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System

For those interested in dismantling racism and promoting a more equitable food system, your summer reading list has been decided! The Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems has developed a robust “Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System” (download the PDF). The authors’ aim with this resource is to “provide current research and outreach on structural racism in the U.S. food system for the food system practitioner, researcher, and educator.” The Annotated Bibliography includes a wide breadth of book and peer-reviewed analyses of racism in the food system (though omits blog posts and news or media articles that the authors emphasize are also important for understanding a full picture of the experiences of people of color within the U.S. food system).
