Jorge Garcia
It may be the most important work yet in a movement that could change all our racial discourse in the classrooms, on suburban streets and in the alleys of our cities, in our political debates, and in our innermost understanding of who we are.
Lewis R. Gordon
A valuable aid for anyone doing serious research on the meanings of race in the American context, and . . . a valuable educational resource for students of the subject as well.
Humanity and Society
These essays provide interesting and evocative interpretations and analyses of the history of American understandings of race.
Ethics
A thought-provoking collection that addresses the concerns of a growing social movement.
Humanity & Society
These essays provide interesting and evocative interpretations and analyses of the history of American understandings of race.
