Your Call: How have Americans’ perceptions of race changed over the last 50 years?

Nov 3, 2014



On the November 3rd, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Jeff Chang about his latest book, "Who We Be: The Colorization of America.” He looks at how conceptions of race have changed through a lens of comic strips, contemporary art, campus protests and corporate marketing campaigns. After eras framed by words like "multicultural" and "post-racial," do we see each other any more clearly? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.


 Jeff Chang, executive director of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University and author of “Who We Be: The Colorization of America”. His previous book was the award-winning “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation” 

He will be speaking on November 10th at the First Congregational Church in Oakland, starting at 7:30 and also on November 11th at 7pm at the City College Chinatown Campus in San Francisco for the Benefit for Asian Americans for Civil Rights & Equality & Hyphen Magazine
