Event Details

GRADSEHD PROUDLY PRESENTS DR. EDUARDO BONILLA-SILVA FOR OUR SPRING DIVERSITY EVENT.

Dr. Bonilla-Silva, scholar, author, and professor at Duke University will be presenting on his current research: Killing Me Softly – Color-blind Racism in American Schools.

Despite our collective concern with the increase in old-fashioned racism, in this lecture Professor Bonilla-Silva will contend that the practices and mechanisms that reproduce racial inequality tend to be subtle and seemingly non-racial, and the ideology that supports this “new racism” regime—“color-blind racism”—is also not overtly racial. After describing the contours of this new racial order, he will explore ways in which killing-me-softly racism colors (pun intended) school affairs. He will conclude by suggesting various ways to fight the new racial monster in schools.

Q&A to follow.
