This three-part documentary series produced by California Newsreel investigates the idea of race in society, science and history. The division of people into distinct categories—”white”, “black”, “yellow”, “red”—has become so widely accepted and so deeply rooted that most people do not think to question its veracity. This three-hour documentary challenges the idea of race as biology and traces our current notions to the 19th century. It also demonstrates how race nevertheless has a continuing impact through institutions and social policies. –Wikipedia

Episode Three – The House We Live In

Race may be a biological myth, but racism gives different groups vastly different life chances. Forty years after the civil rights movement, the playing field is still not level and “colorblind” policies only perpetuate inequality.
