With the election of President Obama, some say race is no longer an obstacle to success and that the "American Dream" is more reality than not. Ben Jealous, executive director of the NAACP, and Gerald Torres, professor at the University of Texas Law School and co-author of The Miner's Canary: Enlisting Race, Resisting Power, Transforming Democracy, will grapple with this erroneous supposition.
Part of the year-long speaker series, "Talking About Race," presented in partnership with the Open Society Institute - Baltimore.
