SPARQ Co-Director Jennifer Eberhardt helps us reflect on the current moment

June 04, 2020

What will it take to end long standing racial disparities and bridge social divides in American society? How can we combat racial bias and the ways that it powerfully permeates all levels of society, especially the criminal justice system? While the death of George Floyd and the events of the past week are still new and raw, they grow out of a long and fraught history. 

SPARQ Co-Director Jennifer Eberhardt's book Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do offers stories, science, and solutions to help us reflect on this moment and start to envision a path forward. Relevant now more than ever, Biased is widely recognized as a critical resource for understanding racial bias and how to combat it. As Dr. Eberhardt writes in the book: “The first step toward ending those disparities is to discard the assumption that they are inevitable.”
