Race in Contemporary America

“A majority of Americans believe that the U.S. is a post-racial or colorblind society where everyone has the same opportunities to get ahead. Though the evidence in support of this notion is extremely weak, it remains the dominant ¬†racial narrative in the U.S. I will begin out conversation by providing some context about the racial status quo in the U.S. I will facilitate an extended discussion about how and why race still matters. It is my hope that students interested in, confused about, and/or frustrated with matters of race will attend the event, listen to different voices, learn about themselves and our society, and actively participate in the extended conversation.” ¬† -Professor Ted Thornhill
