AAPA Statement on Race and Racism


The AAPA Statement on Race and Racism was written by the AAPA subcommittee tasked with revising the previous AAPA statement on the Biological Aspects of Race that was published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, vol. 101, pp 569‐570, 1996. The Committee on Diversity (COD) subcommittee was comprised of (in alphabetical order): Rebecca Ackermann, Sheela Athreya, Deborah Bolnick, Agustín Fuentes (chair), Tina Lasisi, Sang‐Hee Lee, Shay‐Akil McLean, and Robin Nelson. The statement was unanimously accepted by the AAPA Executive Committee at its meeting on March 27, 2019 at the 88th Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio and is available on the AAPA website at http://physanth.org/.
