Yes, we did? Educational equity in a new post-racial society

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The election of Barack Obama as the first African American president of the United States of America marked a watershed moment in American politics. Campaigning on the slogans, Si se puede! and Hope and Change, many Americans, regardless of race, had hoped that his election would also signal an improvement and progress in U.S. race relations and usher in a post-racial moment in the United States. This chapter draws on personal narrative to examine the post-racial rhetoric within the context of a multicultural and equity studies doctoral course.
