Business History Conference, a non-profit international scholarly organization whose purpose is to further the historical study of business and the environments—political, social, cultural—in which it operates. The Exchange is not an opinion blog, but rather a resource that provides current information about and of interest to BHC members and the wider world of business and economic historians. We do not publish comments or editorial content. We are particularly eager to expand our postings of content outside the North American context. To send suggestions for postings, please see our Contacts page.
Business history and race: a partial, open bibliography The Business History Conference is working to facilitate the creation of a bibliography of scholarly work on race and business history. We hope that the bibliography will serve as a resource for those seeking to create more inclusive syllabi and understand the historical context for our present moment of reckoning with structural racism in the United States and across the globe. The bibliography is crowdsourced and draws on the collective expertise of the BHC membership. The BHC wishes to expand the list of references already curated and invites your contributions to the bibliography (The current list of references contains 154 titles). Submit your suggestions by (a) emailing additional references to Anne Fleming of the BHC Electronic Media Oversight Committee <acf80 at law.georgetown.ed> or BHC Web Editor Paula de la Cruz-Fernandez <padelacruzf at gmail.com>, (b) tweeting titles to @TheBHCNews or (c) adding it
