“Inheritance: Race, Responsibility, and Paying Attention in the Generations After Jim Crow” is a blog about just that: paying attention.

Years ago, a friend and professional colleague in Virginia asked me why white people only pay attention to African American history during Black History Month.  We shouldn’t.  We should pay attention to it all year because black history is inextricably interwoven with white history, U.S. history, North American history, and world history.

“Inheritance” is where I’ll be talking about News, Books, Movies, and significant events in the history of race relations in this country. Please read it, comment on it, and join the conversation — for all our sakes.
