Video | Weekend Lesson: The Social Construction of Race

I love videos and I love animation, and I love when they are employed to make complicated concepts like race more digestible. Check out this animation, "The Social Construction of Race Explained: Paradox Animation by Dalton Conley."

"Race as we know it has no deterministic, biological basis; all the same, race is so powerful that it can have life-or-death consequences."

Narrated by sociologist Dalton Conley (author of You May Ask Yourself: An Introduction to Thinking like a Sociologist). Learn more at wwnorton.com/soc
