"Racism: Reality Built on a Myth" Talk With Author John Lovchik
Author event with John Lovchik author of "Racism: Reality Built on a Myth" Lovchik has been an anti-racism activist for more than 20 years. His book is a chronological overview of racism that shows racism was not a natural reaction to difference, but an intentionally implemented and nurtured system of dividing groups of people. The book also shows that the policies and events of the past are not a curiosity of long ago but continue to have a profound effect on the present.
