Race in the Marketplace Recognized at AMA-EBSCO Awards

Aug 25, 2022

Race in the Marketplace was a 2022 Distinguished Winner

"The power of this book is that it directly brings to light the myriad ways race and markets impact each other. Race is not treated as one variable among many that must be controlled, nor are markets limited to places of monetary exchange. Here, the nuances and complexities of race are brought to the fore, and markets are demonstrated as essential to nearly every aspect

of our lives."


Sonya Grier, Guillaume D. Johnson, Kevin D. Thomas, and Anthony Kwame Harrison knew very well what they were creating when they compiled and edited Race in the Marketplace: Crossing Critical Boundaries—it’s right there in the introduction. The book brings together transdisciplinary scholars and explores the spatial and temporal; intersectionality; the actual act of researching; and race in the context of various, specific markets. And it was just recognized as a Distinguished Winner in the 2022 AMA-EBSCO Annual Awards for Responsible Research in Marketing.


This award, presented by the American Marketing Association and EBSCO Information Services, in cooperation with Community for Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM), and cosponsored by the Sheth Foundation, “honors outstanding research that produces both credible and useful knowledge that can be applied to benefit society.” To qualify, works must adhere to RRBM’s Seven Principles of Responsible Research which include considerations for benefit to society, collaboration, and impact.
