Postracial America?: An Interdisciplinary Study, edited by Dickinson’s Vincent L. Stephens and Anthony Stewart of Bucknell University, examines the idea of a “postracial America” through various critical lenses, including film studies, literature, media representations, gender studies, and more. While the concept of America as a “postracial” nation received a great deal of attention during Barack Obama’s presidency, this volume shows that the idea has existed since the founding of the country and will continue to do so even now that Obama has left the White House. Moreover, the book looks at the implications of holding up postracial culture as a worthy goal for the nation.
