The American Prospect & Demos

The American Prospect & Demos

The American Prospect and Demos – with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, created a collection of essays offering a fresh assessment of the nature of conversations on race and racism in 21st century America, as well as an examination of opportunities for racial healing. While there have been achievements in the effort to eradicate racism, it still remains a powerful force in American culture, business and politics, making it critical, now more than ever to find ways have generative conversations toward racial healing.

With permission from the American Prospect and Demos and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, GlobalPolicy.TV will be presenting the essays in a series. The series opens with an introduction by Shirley Sherrod, who reminds readers that working together “toward racial healing” is the only way to overcome the divisions and hatred which fuel racism today. The topics in the rest of this series of essays range from a discussion of public opinion about racism to how mainstream media cover (and often don’t cover) issues that may adversely impact minorities.

Youth as Change Agents

In evaluating the state of racism in 21st century America, some of the greatest change is coming from youth leaders. GlobalPolicy.TV, with permission is bringing you the second article in the special report on race in America series, Color Blinded: Do Americans See Race Too Much – or Not Enough? published by The American Prospect and Demos, in their April 2011 issue. This special report was funded in part by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

The following collection of essays offers a fresh assessment of the nature of racism in 21st-century America and an examination of opportunities for healing it. The subject could not be more important. In many ways, race is a stain that runs across the entire fabric of American history almost from the beginning of European entry to the New World to the election of Barack Obama as the first African American president.
