FRANK Talks: Colorblindness and equality – Oro Valley

August 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Colorblindness and equality: Well-intentioned American values, or myths?

Dr. Angelina Castagno, Northern Arizona University, Educational Foundations

Most of us are raised to value colorblindness and equality. Lady Justice is depicted wearing a blindfold to symbolize objectivity; Dr. King’s legacy to judge each other by our character rather than skin color is a well-known mantra; and we regularly pledge our allegiance to equality for all. We are taught that these American values are what sets us apart from other nations. Does our devotion to colorblindness and equality actually promote or hinder social justice? Do these distinctly American values reduce or exacerbate racial tensions and inequities within the U.S.? Join us for a FRANK Talk about colorblindness and equality in America.
