Anderson’s body of work is rigorous, field-defining, yet accessible to both the scholarly and public communities. That is no mean feat. Her four books on the destructive effect of white supremacy on U.S. foreign policy and the Bill of Rights have led to recognition by the National Book Awards, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the NAACP Image Award, the Gustavus Myers Award, and the Stuart Bernath Prize. A New York Times Bestselling author, her research has advanced the work for rights-based organizations, such as Amnesty International. She has been awarded fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, Ford Foundation, and ACLS.
