Ok, despite my reservations about anti-racist reading lists, I’ll tweet a short list based on my surrender bookshelf. This list is mostly aimed at people in the biomedical/health sciences.

This list is not limited to being ‘anti-racist.’ It covers topics at the intersection of racism, professional hierarchies in healthcare, biomedical research, & social policy more broadly.

I also pair James Tyner’s (2019) Dead Labor: Toward a Political Economy of Premature Death with the Murphy & Tall Bear texts referenced above. Thinking critically about ‘population’ changes how you think of life itself.

I also recommend Lundy Braun’s (2014) Breathing Race Into the Machine: The Surprising Career of the Spirometer from Plantation to Genetics If you’re dedicated to dismantling racism in medicine, start with the clinical heuristics- e.g. ‘adjustments’ for race, like eGFR
