Mr. McWhorter delivered the April Bradley Lecture. He talked about his book, Winning the Race: Beyond the Crisis in Black America, published by Gotham. In this sequel to his 2000 book, Losing the Race, he urged blacks to acknowledge what he describes as the new racial realities of America. He said that what began as civil rights activism in the 1960s and 1970s has become something that leaves many blacks to be “defined by defiance.” He also addressed the issues of drug abuse, welfare reform and the exit of industrial jobs from inner cities as they relate specifically to young black men. After his presentation he answered audience members' questions. close
