The Color Line in the 21st Century

Program #DANR003. Recorded in Woods Hole, MA on June 10, 2000.

W. E. B. DuBois, the great African American scholar and activist in his classic 1903 work The Souls of Black Folk wrote, "The problem of the 20th century is the problem of the color line." Now with a new century where has the line moved. Racism today is far more complex than it was in DuBois' time. Then segregation, Jim Crow laws and lynchings made things graphically clear. Today, racism with a modern lexicon takes different shapes and forms.
