African Americans and the American Dream

WED, OCT 1, 2008 (1:22:53)

Theologian Vincent Harding argues that, especially for African Americans, the American dream has never been realized. Harding, professor emeritus of religion and social transformation at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, suggests that the dream is at best a hope, at worst a mockery, and that it remains alive in the words and imaginations of the artists and activists of the community. Retracing the roads and revisiting his companions of the civil rights movement, Harding reflects on their achievements in making the dream more of a reality and points out the work that still needs to be done.
