The Mythology of Racial Progress

April 21 @ 5:30 PM PDT

The Mythology of Racial Progress

Our perceptions of, beliefs about, and solutions for, racial inequality in the United States are shaped, at least in part, by a mythology of racial progress. Central to this mythology is the dominant narrative that American society is automatic, if not naturally, making steady linear progress toward racial equality. Professor Richeson will illuminate the psychological science that sustains the narrative as well as some of the consequences of efforts to disrupt it. She also will discuss the implications of the mythology of racial progress for efforts to engender actual racial equity in contemporary society.
