This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As we look back on that part of our history, what progress have we made? While race relations have improved in some ways, echoes of that struggle still exist today. Some point to the election of Barack Obama as proof that we live in a post-racial world - is that true? Is post-racial something we should even strive for?
