Some resources mentioned by Dr. Hazel during the show:

Race After Technology by author Ruha Benjamin
This book speaks to how we are likely to overlook discrimination and racism in science (and by extension medicine) and technology because we assume it is all about facts when in actual facts, there are people with biases behind STEM.

This is why I Resist by Shola Mos-Shogbamimu

Do Better by Rachel Ricketts
This book looks at racial justice and spiritual activism, which calls on all of us, especially non-White folks to do better.
