Ashley "Woody" Doane is associate dean of the University of Hartford's Hillyer College; chair of the Department of Social Sciences; and a professor of sociology. In this first of a two-part interview, Doane talks about the Social Sciences and his research in the effects of racism on the majority race and in racial discourse in America.
Doane also discusses the rise of ethnic consciousness among Anglo-Americans; white privilege; the need to acknowledge racism in order to move beyond race; individual vs. institutional racism; and the illusion of the colorblind society.
