Race & Privilege: Why Wealth & Status Didn’t Protect My Family from Suburban Bigotry

Lawrence Graham’s (Princeton ’83) article “The Rules: Making Sense of Race and Privilege” made a splash when it was published first in the Princeton Alumni Weekly and later in The Washington Post.  Author of 14 book about race, class, and politics (as well as being an attorney), Graham cited his teenage son’s experience facing racism to explain how entrenched racism is no matter how much status an individual acquires.

Graham will speak at the Carl Fields Center (Room 104) on Tuesday, December 2 at 5:30 pm.
