Summary: Did racist atrocities in the 19th and 20th centuries bring Western society to an ethical and ideological turning point? Or has racial oppression simply assumed other, more insidious forms? Pursuing answers, this program focuses on a pattern of segregation and genocide evident in King Leopold's Belgian Congo rampages, South Africa's apartheid rule, the terrorism of Jim Crow, and less obvious examples that persist in today's global community. Several renowned authors, including Dr. Michael Eric Dyson of Georgetown University, Dr. Manning Marable of Columbia, and Dr. Kwame Anthony Appiah of Princeton, contribute expert commentary.
