"The Dialogue On Race basic and advanced series have completely revolutionized the way that I view race and race relations in the United States, and encouraged me towards action to challenge the institutional structures which maintain racism. I found the discussion, readings, and videos both challenging and incredibly informative.

It helped clarify the inadequacy of being "colorblind," and the need to understand an accurate history of race relations in our country.
