      Race in America: Then and Now examines racial justice in America today, and the continuing role of race in the United States. Through field experiences, readings, videos, and class discussions, students journey into the United States’ painful history of racial oppression and examine past and current struggles for racial equity in America. This is the story of Miles Lord (–), who rose from humble beginnings on Minnesota’s Iron Range to become one of the most colorful and powerful judges in the country, described as “an unabashed Prairie populist” and “a live-wire slayer of corporate behemoths.”. In Ethnic America, Prof. Sower (Hoover Institution) cheered the uphill march of ethnic and racial groups in America; in The Economics and Politics of Race, he suggests that the shortest route to the top is through economic rather than political competition. From the world over comes evidence that you can't keep a good culture down.
