White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide Monday, February 11, 2019 6:00 pm, McCosh Hall, Room 10

Throughout our history, as African American have advanced towards full participation in our democracy, White reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow. The so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs disenfranchised millions of African Americans while propelling presidents Nixon and Reagan into the White House. Professor Anderson will discuss the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, and renders visible the long lineage of White rage, adding an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America.
