Keisha N. Blaine, Chad Williams, and Kidada E. Williams, eds.,  Charleston Syllabus: Readings on Race, Racism, and Racial Violence (University of Georgia Press, 2016).

This text is written for academics and the general public who are trying to make sense of the Charleston Massacre at the AME church in South Carolina, and racial violence in general. The editors offer readings that contextualize and historicize the event, while at the same time offering readings that suggest preventive measures so that tragedies like these cease to exist.
