  2. Race the Power of an Illusion: Story We Tell: Race, Slavery, Settler Colonialism & American History (Part II)

    Showing of 2nd part of video documentary: Race, Power of an Illusion followed by a panel discussion of faculty. This panel will look historically at the origins of the concept of race in the United States, how it was used by pseudo scientists and the elite to justify enslavement of Africans, and how the country’s laws and institutions were designed around race to privilege whites. The video examines the contradictions between the founding of the country as a democracy in which “All men are created equal” and the heavy reliance on the system of slavery and displacement of indigenous Americans to acquire land for white settlers. The panel will look at how ideas of race evolved over the history of the country, and how scientific racism was embraced to justify slavery and the subordination of African Americans, Native Americans and other people of color.

  6. Race & Racism in the 21st Century: A Humanist Approach w/ Tim Wise & Joseph Graves

    It can be argued that perhaps the key issue which separates the United States from the other 17 world democracies is that this nation was built in no small way on the backs of chattel slavery, an institution which has had an impact not only on the “race” of people whom were enslaved, but the entire sociopolitical structure of the nation itself. Not only has slavery, and the justification of slavery and domination which we know today as racism, affected the relationships between those of African-Americans and the dominant “race” (Caucasians) - as well as other people of color whose entrance and experiences in this nation, however problematic, were different by the very nature of how they came to be in America - but it has also blurred the line between the powerful and rich and the rest of us who share a class consciousness’ (or who should!)
