The Ebony Tower Syllabus: Sociology

At The Ebony Tower, we believe it’s important to deliberately read and cite the work of scholars of color. To make this process more efficient, we are organizing a comprehensive list of blackademic literature according to fields of study which you can find below. Please email us to recommend a book to our syllabus (even your own).
