Jeff Chang Nominated for NAACP Image Award for Who We Be

posted by Len Patel

Jeff ChangAuthor Jeff Chang has been nominated for an NAACP image award for his book Who We Be, The Colorization of America.

The book is a strong retrospective on the evolution of race in America through the eyes of artists.

“Race is not a question of biology. It’s one of culture,” said Chang at a recent gathering in San Francisco organized by Chinese for Affirmative Action. ” It’s about what we see and what we think about what we see.

“Racism is supported by a specific kind of refusal. A denial of empathy. People of color were simply not seen.

He described the current culture wars in the US a struggle for the “soul of America.” He believes the election of President Obama is a big reason for this.

You can read more about Chang’s book in the Huffington Post.
