About this product
- DescriptionThe book is divided into two major sections: (1) Reclaiming Integration ; (2) Reclaiming the Language of Race. Both sections are located in the context of the post-racial era and analyzed by nationally rewned scholars in various dimensions. The purpose of this organization is to link structural efforts to encourage voluntary integration with discursive efforts to broaden our social understanding of race in ways that advance the project of American democracy. It is our firm belief that we cant achieve meaningful advances against enduring racial inequalities without linking structural impacts of racialization (e.g., racial inequalities in ecomics, education, healthcare, etc.) to the social discourse of race, specifically in terms of the rejection of post-racial politics that are based on the false idea that racism and discrimination are longer obstacles to opportunity in the United States.
