  • Description: The presentation will focus on the interpretation of several iconic images used to represent racial inclusion at what the sociologist Eduardo Bonilla-Silva has tellingly called "historically white collges and universities". All of the images come from schools in the Midwest. The liberal narrative of admission that welcomes students of color to historically white universities comes, at the high price of effacing the exclusionary past and present of such institutions.
