Shades Of White

Oct 15, 2015

University of Kansas professor David Roediger's 'The Wages of Whiteness,' published in 1991, is considered one among the few texts that marked the start of what has come to be known as critical whiteness studies.

What does it mean to be white? Can we have a discussion about race without talking about whiteness? KU history professor David Roediger, a leading national scholar in "white studies," joins us to discuss his work.
