Minority Majority: The Social and Legal Implications of a Post-White America

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


Minorities are expected to become the majority in America by the year 2050, ending nearly 300 years of a white majority. How have societies dealt with such changes throughout history, and how will Americans react to this change? Does recent backlash, such as elements of the Tea Party Movement, indicate growing recognition of, and resistance to, this reality? Or does election of President Obama and the appointment of Justice Sotomayor indicate that the American people have already begun to accept this inevitability? Finally, will the constitutional and statutory protections set in place to protect minorities continue to be relevant in a Minority Majority America?
