Matters of Race

Matters of Race

This series challenges its audience to reconsider the architecture of race, its role in American democracy and its relationship to power in America. Using personal memoirs, autobiographies, interviews and letters from several leading authors, the series explores the complex demands of the country's rapidly changing multiracial and multicultural society. Through the voices and stories of Americans young and old, "Matters of Race" shows how lessons from that struggle can inform the way citizens imagine the new America and how they prepare society and themselves for the next century.
