Adolph Reed and Cathy Cohen | Long Time Coming? | Identity & Politics

Professors Adolph Reed and Cathy Cohen discuss the election of President Barack Obama in the context of race relations and identity politics in America. Eschewing the facile generalizations that characterize much of the medias coverage of the election, Professors Cohen and Reed give critical and refreshingly novel insight into the role race played in the election, and the possible long-term ramifications of the election in terms of racial discourse and progressive politics in America.
