RMICC to Join Part Six: The Race Whisperer Decoding the Silent Language of Politics at History Colorado

 

April 14, 2015, Denver CORMICC Executive Director, Shadana Tokaheya Win Sultan, joins as a panelist at History Colorado to discuss Race and Politics.

Ian Haney Lopez


As a part of its FWD series, "Race: Are We So Different?" History Colorado will host Ian Haney López, author of Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class.  This is the last in a series of six public forums and will look at how the racial and ethnic composition of Colorado has changed from the past to the present.  A panel of local leaders, including Dr. Winston Grady Willis of MSU Denver and Shadana Sultan of the Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce, will join him.  The panel will focus on changing demographics, hidden biases, and strategies for creating a true multi-ethnic democracy.

A chaired law professor at UC Berkely, Dr. Ian Haney López is one of the nation's leading thinkers on how racism has evolved in the United States since the civil rights era.  His current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions in society and growing wealth inequality in the United States.
