- 'Get Out' Sprang From An Effort To Master Fear, Says Director Jordan Peele
Fresh Air with Terry Gross, March 15, 2017 The new film, Get Out, defies easy classification. Though it has funny moments, it's primarily a horror film, with racial anxiety at its center. Writer-director Jordan Peele tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross that he thinks of Get Out as a "social thriller." The movie tells the story of a young black man named Chris whose white girlfriend, Rose, takes him to meet her parents for the first time — without first telling them he's black. Rose's parents go out of their way to show Chris how open minded they are, but there's something suspicious in the liberal facade they present. The film takes several twists and turns (which we won't spoil here) as Chris figures out what is going on.
- 'National Geographic' Reckons With Its Past: 'For Decades, Our Coverage Was Racist'
Laurel Wamsley, NPR, March 12, 2018 If National Geographic's April issue was going to be entirely devoted to the subject of race, the magazine decided it had better take a good hard look at its own history. Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg asked John Edwin Mason, a professor of African history and the history of photography at the University of Virginia, to dive into the magazine's nearly 130-year archive and report back. What Mason found was a long tradition of racism in the magazine's coverage: in its text, its choice of subjects, and in its famed photography.

NPR 1A, with Joshua Johnson, May 10, 2017 In his new book Richard Rothstein explains how, for more than 100 years, the U.S. government practiced, enforced and allowed segregation in housing. Segregated public housing, whites-only suburbs, racially biased loan programs and a host of other practices hobbled African-Americans, Rothstein argues, leading to the deep socioeconomic and geographic divides that exist in the United States today. Rothstein calls his book “a forgotten history” because it was once known. Acknowledging and understanding this history again, he says, is the first step toward finding a solution.

- An Insider's View: The Dark Rigidity of Fundamentalist Rural America
In deep-red white America, the white Christian God is king. By Forsetti's Justice / AlterNet, March 13, 2017 The real problem isn’t East Coast elites who don’t understand or care about rural America. The real problem is that rural Americans don't understand the causes of their own situations and fears and they have shown no interest in finding out. They don’t want to know why they feel the way they do or why they are struggling because they don’t want to admit it is in large part because of the choices they’ve made and the horrible things they’ve allowed themselves to believe.

- California Newsreel - The House We Live In: Race—The Power of an Illusion (56:27)
"Virginia law once defined a black person as someone with 1/16th African ancestry; in Florida, it was 1/8th African ancestry. If you can cross a state line and literally, legally change race, what does race really mean? This program argues that the idea of race was developed and reinforced through politics, economics, and culture. Real estate practices as well as federal regulations kept new neighborhoods segregated after World War II, and it was the white families awarded mortgages whose assets accumulated, creating a legacy of opportunity for their children and grandchildren. With the starting line for the next generation drawn at different points on the field, the racial divide could only grow larger. Part of the series Race: The Power of an Illusion. (56 minutes)"

- Segregation in America
Report and digital exhibit by the Equal Justice Initiative America’s history of racial inequality continues to haunt us. The genocide of Native people, 250-year enslavement of black people, adoption of “racial integrity laws” that demonized ethnic immigrants and people of color, and enforcement of policies and practices designed to perpetuate white supremacy are all part of our difficult past. This country has witnessed great triumph, innovation, and progress, but we are burdened by a painful history that we have yet to adequately acknowledge.
