Bridging the Black-White Divide

(p.1) Introduction
Racial Reconciliation and the Healing of a Nation

Charles J. Ogletree Jr.

NYU Press

The introduction discusses how racial reconciliation has been thought about from Brown’s integrationist vision to imaginings of post-racialism that accompanied the election of Barack Obama. We ask what we can learn about the conditions of racial reconciliation by examining that history. This chapter also provides an overview of the subsequent chapters in this book, showing how each helps illuminate the conditions that impede racial reconciliation and those that might facilitate it in the future.

Keywords:   Brown’s integrationist vision, Barack Obama, post-racialism, reconciliation
