About RCP Publishing

Founded in 2020, RCP Publishing is the publishing house of The Equity Institute for Race-Conscious Pedagogy. We bring profound ideas to the world of education through academic scholarship that focuses on the intersection of race and education. 

Our Mission

RCP Publishing provides new and innovative ideas about race-centered learning in K-12 and higher education. We publish peer-reviewed books that connect educators to the concept of race consciousness, antiracism, and social justice praxis. In keeping with the Equity Institute for Race-Conscious Pedagogy's commitment to creating equitable schools and classrooms, we publish books and journals for scholars, students, and parents of students at each level of education.
