That provocative title for a book was intentional. It connotes an America not as far from its slave past as many would like to think. Dr. Angela Hattery and Dr. Earl Smith tackle some very difficult issues in our society as to ways that black bodies are regulated from public education to the criminal justice system. Are we closer to the heralded post racial society than we are to systemic racism that has been a part of the American story for centuries? Join us for a discussion of where we stand on the continuum of social change.
