Race, Education & Multiculturalism

Program #MARM006. Recorded in Denver, CO on October 22, 1993.

The United States is rapidly changing. Within two decades the majority of the working class between the ages of 20 and 40 will be people of color. And by 2050 we will live in a country in which whites will be a minority of the total population. The color line will be fundamentally transformed. Education, embracing and promoting the principles of multiculturalism, should be a key element in the formation of a just and democratic society. Yet today, de facto segregation is increasing. Economic inequality is growing. We are moving toward two distinct societies, one rich and one poor. The crisis of race, class, gender and poverty is a shifting and volatile tectonic plate under the body politic.

Recorded at Metro State College.
