Randall Kennedy on 'The Persistence of the Color Line: Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency'

Monday, August 15, 2011

When Barack Obama was elected into office three years ago, a popular sentiment began to take America by hold: that America had matured into a post-racial society. But not everyone agrees with that thought.

Randall Kennedy argues in his new book, The Persistence of the Color Line: Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency,” that race is anything but in the past. Kennedy is a Harvard Law School professor. He joins us from our partner WGBH in Boston.
