Racism is a deep fissure that divides the country. It is persistent and pervasive. Evidence of racism is blatant, as in the burning of African American churches. And it’s also subtle, as in interpersonal relations. In this powerful and moving presentation, Ron Daniels gives the context and background of racism in America and what must be done to overcome it. An eloquent speaker, he has long been involved in civil rights and social justice issues.
