(7/11/22) Ranging from chattel slavery, through the New Deal to the Covid pandemic, Ellis Cose has produced a groundbreaking work that investigates how pivotal decisions have established and perpetuated discriminatory practices. Race and Reckoning: From Founding Fathers to Today's Disruptors -- examines our nation’s history, in which numerous racialized decisions have solidified the fates of generations of citizens of color. Some of the earliest involved race-based slavery, the removal of Indigenous peoples from their lands, and the exclusion of most Asians. More have proliferated over time. While America grew into a superpower in the twentieth century, it continued to discriminate against people of color—both soldiers who served overseas and civilians on the home front, herding Japanese Americans into internment camps during World War II and denying Black citizens their right to vote. Join us when Ellis Cose shares research which uncovers how, at countless points in history, America’s leaders have upheld a narrative of American greatness rooted in racism, as he offers a hopeful yet clear-eyed vision of American possibility on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large.
