Scope and content

Frances Henry is the former Chair of Diversity in the School of Journalism at Ryerson University. Henry is one of Canada's leading experts in the study of racism and anti-racism. Since the mid seventies, when she published the first study of attitudes towards people of colour, she has consistently pioneered research in this field. Her authored or co-authored books include: the fourth edition of "The Colour of Democracy: Racism in Canadian Society" (Thomson, Nelson, 2009); "Racism in the Canadian University" (U. of T Press, 2009); "Racial Profiling: Challenging the Myth of a Few Bad Apples" (U. of T. press, 2006); "Discourses of Domination: Racist in Canada's English Language Press" (2002); and "Challenging Racism in the Arts" (University of Toronto Press,1998). As part of her specialization in Caribbean anthropology she has published the only book on Caribbean communities in Canada, entitled "The Caribbean Diaspora in Toronto: Learning to Live with Racism" (University of Toronto Press, 1994), "Reclaiming African Religion in Trinidad: The Sociopolitcal Legitimation of the Orisha and Spiritual Baptists Faiths" (University of the West Indies Press, 2004), and others.

Henry is currently a Professor Emerita of York University in Toronto, and continues an active research and writing career. She has been awarded several research grants, including Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada grants to write a biography of a famous Orisha elder, the late Ebenezer Elliott (Pa Nezer), and to continue studies of racism in the university. She has published several articles and reviews on racism in the justice system and other institutions of Canadian society and has been a member of the prestigious Royal Society of Canada since 1989.

Fonds consists of one unpublished research student authored by Henry.
