The Many Costs of Racism
What is it like to be a black person in America today? The voices of middle class African Americans captured in this book will surprise those who think the era of racial discrimination is past.

It shows the strong connection between discrimination and health problems, describing these as OcostsO above and beyond the economic trials of discrimination. The book is an ideal text, accessible to students in sociology, law, psychology, and medicine.
