Beyond Black & White: Rethinking Race

Program #MARM007. Recorded in New York, NY on October 26, 1995.

A generation removed from the civil rights movement, the achievement of racial equality and social justice for African Americans seems more remote than ever. Life expectancy for black men is below retirement age. Median black income is 60% that of whites. At the same time, affirmative action, Black Studies programs and other gains of the civil rights era are under attack from the renascent right.

Recorded at the Brecht Forum.
