The November BBB book selection is Biased by Jennifer Eberhardt (nonfiction).
“You don’t have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and even when we genuinely wish to treat all people equally, ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice. In Biased with a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, Jennifer Eberhardt offers us insights into the dilemma and a path forward.” ( – the book jacket).
She is a psychology professor at Stanford and recipient of a 2014 MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant, who works extensively as a consultant to law enforcement.
