RACE–The Power of an Illusion asks a question so basic it’s rarely raised: what is this thing we call race? Since its release in 2003, the series has become one of the most widely used documentaries ever in formal and non-formal education in the US. Millions of people have used the film to scrutinize their own deep-seated beliefs about race and explore how our social divisions are not natural or inevitable, but made. Now, in 2019, the series remains salient and timely.
DVDs of the series are available in the COS Lending Library and there is an excellent companion website at racepowerofanillusion.org
The series is available to stream for $4.99 on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/race
