Who We Were: Racial and Ethnic Identity Through the Census.

This discussion will examine the fraught and often contested process by which the Census has historically constructed American racial and ethnic identity. From the first use of “Hispanic” on the Protected content , to the option, only recently added, to check multiple identifying categories on the Protected content , we’ll consider how the “official” racial/ethnic identity boxes have changed over time, been challenged, and even reclaimed. With sociologist Richard Alba, professor at the CUNY Graduate Center; artist Josh Begley, creator of Racebox.org; journalist Ed Morales, author of Latinx: The New Force in Politics and Culture; and historian Mae Ngai, professor of Asian American Studies and History at Columbia University.
