Institute for Student Success Staff/Faculty Workshop - Colorblind Racism - Nov. 4

October 13, 2015

Campus Dialogue on Race and the Institute for Student Success present a workshop for HSU staff & faculty:


The Sweet Enchantment of Color-Blind Racism

with Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Duke University

Wednesday, November 4, 1-2:30pm

Goodwin Forum


The language of race has changed in significant ways in the Post-Civil Rights Era. Gone for the most part are the odious epithets and explicit signage prevalent in Jim Crow America. Yet, a more “civilized” racial discourse has emerged to become the dominant way in which we transact racial affairs. In this workshop, Dr. Bonilla-Silva will examine this new racial discourse, which he terms color-blind racism. Participants will begin to appreciate how color-blind racism works in the academy and discuss concrete strategies for responding to it. Embedded in this conversation is a call for Americans of good conscience to move away from being spectators of racial affairs and become fighters for racial justice.
