Retail Racism: Shopping While Black and Brown in America

Author: Michelle Dunlap

Based on her own experiences, hundreds of news accounts, research literature, and 19 in-depth interviews with consumers across the country, Dunlap aims to create a widespread discussion that engages readers and empowers them to interrupt, disrupt, and ameliorate the inappropriate and racialized handling of Black and Brown consumers in America today. In doing so, Retail Racism is about not only consumer experiences, but also humane living in America, including surviving and making sense of inequitable experiences, what to do about them, and the larger issues that surround the marketplace for Black and Brown people. A portion of the author proceeds from book sales are automatically donated directly from the publisher’s offices to The Florida Education Fund (FEF), a non-profit organization established in 1984 to help provide opportunities for the educational advancement of Black people.
