This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on the controversial theory of “acting white” its context and its implications in our so-called ‘post-racial’ America. It will cover the recent book of the same name while discussing its provocative theme that racial judgments are not just based on skin color, but on how a person conforms to behaviors or stereotypes associated with a certain race.

Joining us to sort this contention out are law professors Devon Carbado and Mitu Gulati, co-authors of the book Acting White?: Rethinking Race in Post-Racial America, Professor Paul Taylor, and media and political strategist Ron Christie. Together we will discuss race, roles and stereotypes in 21st century America.

It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
