Your Call: How have Americans’ perceptions of race changed over the last 50 years?

Nov 3, 2014

 

  

On the November 3rd, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Jeff Chang about his latest book, "Who We Be: The Colorization of America.” He looks at how conceptions of race have changed through a lens of comic strips, contemporary art, campus protests and corporate marketing campaigns. After eras framed by words like "multicultural" and "post-racial," do we see each other any more clearly? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

 Jeff Chang, executive director of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University and author of “Who We Be: The Colorization of America”. His previous book was the award-winning “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation” 

He will be speaking on November 10th at the First Congregational Church in Oakland, starting at 7:30 and also on November 11th at 7pm at the City College Chinatown Campus in San Francisco for the Benefit for Asian Americans for Civil Rights & Equality & Hyphen Magazine
