Cashin’s study of racism in America uses the 1967 Loving v. Virginia decision as a fulcrum for her investigation of the history of the idea of whiteness and her vision of a future that’s not merely color blind, but truly diverse and celebrated as such. A professor of law at Georgetown, frequent media commentator on law and race relations, and author of books including Place, Not Race, Cashin observes that approval for interracial marriage was just 4% in 1967, while today some 87% approve. Combined with rising rates of cross-racial adoption and friendship, interracial romance heralds the social revolution of a new “culturally dexterous” population.

Cashin will be in conversation with WAMU Editorial Director Alicia Montgomery. She will sign books after the dialogue.
