Abstract

Antiblack racism is a system that is rooted in policies, practices, and institutions such as education, health care, and justice that reinforce beliefs, attitudes, prejudices, oppression, discrimination, and marginalization towards people of Black-African descent worldwide. As the first in a trilogy of Special Issues, this issue of Reflections focuses on experiencing and witnessing this type of racism from authors across racial groups. The images of brutality, death, family grief, and funerals supported the need for expression over the past year. Antiblack sentiment exists, creating stressors for those who live and experience them daily. Finding the antidote for antiblack racism is critical for the billions of Black people across the globe affected by its practice.
