Brandeis Awards Anderson the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize

Brandeis University has awarded Dr. Carol Anderson the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize, given to those who have “made outstanding and lasting scholarly contributions to racial, ethnic and religious relationships.” The prize, which comes with a medal and $25,000, recognizes Anderson’s leading work on how racial inequality intersects with public policy in the United States, past and present. Anderson’s books include White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide (Bloomsbury, 2016), One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy (Bloomsbury, 2018), and The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America (Bloomsbury, 2021).
