Session 5: The Racial Mosaic of America

Speaker: Manuel Pastor, Ph.D.
Professor, Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity, University of Southern California

 

"The experiences of nonblack racial minorities are unique and unacknowledged by most Americans because our mindset does not make room for them. If the United States is to make progress in racial equity, then a full and diverse picture needs to be painted. Without understanding the reality of the struggle, how can Americans join together to put forward solutions?” — Angela Glover Blackwell, Stewart Kwoh, and Manual Pastor, Uncommon Common Ground: Race and America’s Future
