What is critical race theory and why is it under attack? On this episode of Justice Matters, host Sushma Raman discusses critical race theory with Victor Ray, Carr Center Fellow and F. Wendell Miller Associate Professor at the University of Iowa.


Together they explore the related topics of structural racism and intersectionality, and how race shapes social processes typically considered race neutral. Dr. Ray is also a Nonresident Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. As a public scholar, he has published commentary in the Washington Post, Harvard Business Review, Newsweek, and the Boston Review.
