How are racial boundaries defined, and who decides where they lie? What aspects of power and privilege are at work in designing the rules that rule race? Why do states make and manipulate racial classification schema, and with what effects? Northwestern University Associate Professor of African American Studies Barnor Hesse will be joined by Debra Thompson, Associate Professor of Political Science at McGill University, for a dialogue about the racial state and the politics and structures that create, shape, and maintain it.
