The object of this course is to introduce students to debates on race, integration, and affirmative action. We will begin with W.E.DuBois’s classic defenses of cultural pluralism in “The Conservation of Races,” and The Souls of Black Folk and then continue with several discussions of pluralism and assimilation (electronically available articles) ending with Elizabeth Anderson’s The Imperative of Integration the current important work on integration and affirmative action.
