Abstract

America works overtime to create a colorblind society, but does this colorblindness perpetuate, rather than resolve, racism? Despite a growing racial divide, attorney, activist and author Traci Ellis says the time is now to have the courageous conversation about the damage done in the name of colorblindness. Traci O’Neal Ellis is a Chicago-area based attorney, HR professional, frequent speaker on race, law, and politics, and radically inclusive leadership and she is a fierce advocate for social justice.
