Racism – prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.

Looking for the best books about racism? You’ve come to the right place.

If you fight for human rights, then the topic of racism will come up frequently.

Yeah…some people see racism as an “old topic” but it’s something that will almost never go away.

Why?

Well, every individual human is categorized into a race (or multiple races).

But the thing is…Every human is capable of discriminating and antagonizing other humans based on their racial or ethnic group(s).

None of us are immune to being racist.

Not even if you are a person of color.

Not even if you are “not racist”.Not even if you are already fighting daily to be anti-racist.

So what can we do?

Learn.

The best way we can fight normalized and systemic racism is by educating ourselves and others about the roots and realities of racism.

We must constantly check our biases and learn.

Remember, racism is a human rights issue.

That’s right.

An issue for all humans.

Do you care about humans?

…Well then, you better care about the racism even if you identify as “not racist”.

In fact, I encourage you to search our directory’s “anti-racist” tag to find more resources on this topic.

For now, here is a list of 100% free audiobooks about racism. These audiobooks were generously recorded by lil guillotine and cover a fair range of topics that are relevant to our modern human rights climate.

Are Prisons Obsolete? by Angela Davis

InAre Prisons Obsolete?, Professor Davis seeks to illustrate that the time for the prison is approaching an end. She argues forthrightly for “decarceration”, and argues for the transformation of the society as a whole.

With her characteristic brilliance, grace and radical audacity, Angela Y. Davis has put the case for the latest abolition movement in American life: the abolition of the prison. As she quite correctly notes, American life is replete with abolition movements, and when they were engaged in these struggles, their chances of success seemed almost unthinkable. For generations of Americans, the abolition of slavery was sheerest illusion. Similarly,the entrenched system of racial segregation seemed to last forever, and generations lived in the midst of the practice, with few predicting its passage from custom. The brutal, exploitative (dare one say lucrative?) convict-lease system that succeeded formal slavery reaped millions to southern jurisdictions (and untold miseries for tens of thousands of men, and women). Few predicted its passing from the American penal landscape. Davis expertly argues how social movements transformed these social, political and cultural institutions, and made such practices untenable.” – GoodReads

Our Enemies In Blue: Police in Power by Kristian Williams

“Even critics have a difficult time imagining a world without police. But just what is the role of police in a democracy: to serve the public or to protect the powerful? Tracing the evolution of the modern police force back to the slave patrols, this controversial study observes the police as the armed defender of a violent status quo.” -GoodReads

Revolution at Point Zero by Silvia Federici

“Written between 1975 and the present, the essays collected in this volume represent years of research and theorizing on questions of social reproduction and the consequences of globalization. Originally inspired by Federici’s organizational work in the Wages for Housework movement, the topics discussed include the international restructuring of reproductive work and its effects on the sexual division of labor, the globalization of care work and sex work, the crisis of elder care, and the development of affective labor. Both a brief history of the international feminist movement and a contemporary critique of capitalism, these writings continue the investigation of the economic roots of violence against women.” -GoodReads
