The Scholarly Kitchen has had a long-running and ongoing commitment to shedding light on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As the global protests against the ingrained biases and systemic racism of our society continue, so must our efforts to better educate ourselves on our history and to better understand the experiences of others. Last week, Oxford University Press (full disclosure: my employer) put together a panel featuring three important authors, Jeffrey C. Stewart (author of The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke), Nikole Hannah-Jones (creator of the landmark 1619 Project in The New York Times), and W. Caleb McDaniel (author of The Sweet Taste of Liberty: A True Story of Slavery and Restitution In America). The conversation is a fascinating look at our history and our current moment.
