Colorblind: The Rise of Post-Racial Politics and the Retreat from Racial Equity (DVD)

In this powerful lecture, anti-racist activist and author Tim Wise discusses the pitfalls of “colorblindness” in the Obama era and argues for deeper color-consciousness in both public and private practice.

Wise argues that we can only begin to move toward authentic social and economic equity by acknowledging the diverse identities that have shaped our perceptions and the role that race continues to play in the maintenance of disparities between whites and people of color in the United States today.
