Marcus Bierich Lecture in the Humanities

The Hidden Perils of Resurgent White Supremacy in the Trump Era

The current US political landscape has become increasingly hospitable and encouraging for racist, anti-immigrant, white supremacist thinking, policy, and political and legal appointments. But is this moment a dramatic break from racial politics over the past forty years—as many suggest—or could the liberal politics of “colorblindness” have helped usher it in? In this lecture, director of Brown University’s Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, Tricia Rose, discusses the resurgence of white supremacist trends in the Trump era and what they mean for American society and political life in the near future.
