The current unrest after police shootings of unarmed black men means the battle for racial justice is far from over. Jeff Chang is a journalist, cultural critic, and the head of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford. In his new book, Who We Be: The Colorization of America, he argues that the myth of multiculturalism has in some ways silenced a real conversation about racial disparity in America. KALW’s Sandhya Dirks sat down with Chang to talk about his new book, current protests over police shootings, and how to begin a conversation about race in America today.

 

  

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.
