About the Program

Professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva talked about this book, "Racism without Racists," in which he argues that we do not live in a post-racial society, despite the election and re-election of President Obama.  Instead, he says, are now living in an age of color-blind racism that manifests itself in many, less overt ways than the racism experienced by past generations of non-white Americans.  This interview, recorded in Durham, North Carolina, is part of Book TV's College Series.
