Welcome to the guide on Racial Inequality in the Justice System

Welcome to the research guide on Racial Inequality in the Justice System. This guide will offer resources focusing on institutional racism in the criminal justice system, especially regarding Black and other non-white communities. This includes police violence and abuse of power. It also includes racial inequalities throughout the steps of due process, such as prosecution, conviction, and sentencing. The tabs on the side of the page will direct you to books, streaming videos, databases, and web resources that will help you research these and related topics.
