This reading and discussion series will explore the inception, inculcation, and function of race in American society. We chose this topic to improve our understanding of systematic, and social, inclusion and exclusion in American systems. Our goal is to tease out the implicit ways race serves as a real, and imagined, force in the lives of all Americans. This group will continue to explore racial dynamics in America, this time delving into the experiences of Mexican Americans and Asian Americans, including the history of West coast immigration.
