Why Can't We Talk About Race? Racial Legacies and Learning: An American Dialogue.
Association of American Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
This brochure describes an initiative of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, Racial Legacies and Learning, designed to foster learning and dialogue about America's racial legacies and opportunities. The project began in early April 1998 with a national Campus Week of Dialogue, and was expected to culminate in campus-community study dialogues at colleges and universities around the country in the fall of 1998. Introductory information provides demographic data showing trends of increasing diversity to the year 2050. Examples are then given of campus-community partners participating in this initiative, including City University of New York, Mount St. Mary's College (California), Bloomfield College (New Jersey), Bowling Green State University (Ohio), and the University of Massachusetts. The brochure ends with an outline of ways that individuals and institutions can become part of this initiative and a list of campus contacts at 76 institutions. A separate annotated summer reading list is included with the document. (DB)
