From King To Obama: Explaining Racism in Post-Racial America
Eduardo Bonilla-Silva is professor and Chair of the Sociology deportment at Duke University. Professor Bonilla-Silva gained visibility in the social sciences with his 1997 American Sociological Review article. "Rethinking Racism: Toward a Structural Interpretation, " where he challenged social analysts to analyze racial matters from a structural perspective rather than from the sterile prejudice perspective. His most recent appearance can be found on the PBS election special, Race 2012. Bonilla-Silva has received many awards. Most notably, the 2007 Lewis Coser Award given by the Theory Section of the American Sociological Association for Theoretical Agenda Setting and, in 2011, the Coz-Johnson-Frazier Award given by the American Sociological Association "to an individual or individuals for their work in the intellectual traditions of these three African American Scholars."
