My book, The Arc of a Bad Idea: Understanding and Transcending Race, inspired by my doctoral research on nonracial identity is now available for purchase on the Oxford University Press OUP) Website, at Amazon.com and at other retail sites.
“About the Cover: Author Carlos Hoyt with his biological son Evan in a family photo taken in 2006. What race is Carlos? And Evan? Are they the same race, or different? Who decides? Can they refuse self-racialization? This book explores these and many other questions, and points the way beyond the racial worldview.”
In addition to material contained in the "more" tab, some of my recent activities include:
Four short video pieces on race and racialization produced by OUP (they appear below).
Recently, the folks at Wheelock College produced a brief video of me discussing the nonracial worldview.
Please check out a piece I wrote, recently published at Cognoscenti at WBUR: Mean, Kind Or Non: Which Type of Racist Are You?
Boston Globe writer, Kay Lazar, produced a nice piece on constructive efforts to deal with the Confederate flag, including my experience with this challenge.
