In a post President Barrack Obama election there is a belief that race has become a quite social exercise. Our discussion is not quite or over. Race is a loud social enigma that we will discuss. Many people in the U.S. and around the world have seen the election of President Barack Obama as a sign that racism in America is a thing of the past. America, it is said, is now a “post-racial” society, and has moved beyond a racially divided time. Yet that past was not very long ago. Obama’s election came within the lifetimes of people whose parents were born into slavery in America, and he was elected President less than fifty years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Even after these landmark pieces of legislation became law, in the 1960s many communities of color struggled to find justice and equality in the United States.
