This is the 2017 blog for Carleton College’s Beauty and Race in America class. We aim to foster a conversation about how discourses of race and beauty intertwine, both historically and in the contemporary period. We reserve the right to delete comments that are either disrespectful or that do not contribute to the conversation. If you have any questions, you can reach me, Adriana Estill, the professor, at aestill@carleton.
