Hope and Healing: Business Professor Oscar Holmes IV

Oscar Holmes IV, associate professor of management and associate dean of undergraduate programs for the Rutgers School of Business–Camden, is the author of a recent article, “Police Brutality and Four Other Ways Racism Kills Black People,” that appeared in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal.

“I think we should be hopeful for a few reasons: More organizations are making public commitments to and investments in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Moreover, some organizations are specifically naming anti-Black racism as a systemic problem within this country and their organizations that need to be addressed, an unlikely widespread admission just a decade ago. Powerful people and institutions are being more responsive to grassroots activists and movements, and broader coalitions are forming to eliminate systemic oppression. As a nation, to the degree that this year’s past difficulties have made us aware of our critical weaknesses, then that has made us stronger.”
