Zócalo at the Hammer: Is Obama Erasing the Color Line?

Zócalo at the Hammer: Is Obama Erasing the Color Line?

For all the hopes of a post-racial America under Barack Obama, questions of race and identity continue to enter into discussions of Obama’s presidency. Has Obama done enough for African Americans? Has the Tea Party movement been fueled by racial prejudice? Randall Kennedy, Harvard professor of law and author of The Persistence of the Color Line: Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency, discusses Obama’s successes and failures in dealing with matters of race.
