Race from Berlin to Louisville: An Introduction

James A. Throgmorton. 2005. Poroi 4, 1; 54-59.

This article introduces a symposium about race and racism in Berlin and Louisville after the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Wall between East and West. It begins by asking whether race and racism still matter in the United States. By juxtaposing two articles about Berlin and Louisville, it concludes that race and racism still matter; that both articles reveal ongoing racialization. The question then can be restated: how do race and racism matter after the fall of the Wall and the end of the Cold War?
