The book "Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation" brings together more than 10 years of research on high-achieving, underrepresented racially minoritized (URM) students and faculty in science,  technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The book explores questions such as: How do some students manage to survive brutal academic climates, and what does it cost them? Why do schools continue to recruit URM people into disciplines whose climate regularly drives them away? How does excluding people of color from STEM disciplines limit innovation?
