Angie Beeman is an Associate Professor in the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs and Affiliate Faculty with Black and Latino Studies at Baruch College-CUNY. She is also a Director with the Global Listening Centre Academic Board. Her research examines how racism and anti-blackness evolve and are reproduced, particularly within progressive organizations and workplaces. Dr. Beeman's research has appeared in the Harvard Business Review, Forbes Magazine, The Wire, Sociological Forum, Social Science Quarterly, the Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, Violence Against Women and as chapters in several edited volumes. She has been quoted in Nature, Forbes, Huffington Post, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, Galveston Daily News, Wallethub, and College Magazine. Her book, "Liberal White Supremacy: How Progressives Silence Racial and Class Oppression" examines divides among progressives and the role of liberal ideology in preventing significant change. In this book, and in her earlier works, she conceptualizes racism-evasion as the outcome of color-bind ideology and advances practical applications of what she calls "racism-centered intersectionality." Dr. Beeman has shared this work with multiple audiences and is frequently invited by organizations to speak on liberal ideology, racism, social justice, and allyship. She is currently writing a manifold workbook with training and instructor resources to accompany her book.

"A penetrating look at divergent approaches to progressive change, liberal and radical, in our systemically racist society. With innovative insight, Angie Beeman problematizes white virtuousness and superiority framing that undermines liberal and radical organization. Moving beyond that framing, she argues, effective progressive organization must feature both classism-centered and racism-centered approaches. In this view we must move beyond talk-centered, social-justice liberalism to more confrontational approaches to dismantling systemic racism."
