"Are we morally obligated to live in a racially integrated society?"

Guest: Elizabeth Anderson

Are we living in a post-racial America? How important is integration to democracy and why do we tend to live in such segregated enclaves? Do we have a moral obligation to integrate our society, even if it means some people might not want to live next to the neighbors they end up with? 

Elizabeth Anderson is the John Dewey Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies and the Arthur F. Thurnau Professor at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She is the author The Imperative of Integration and Value in Ethics and Economics, and numerous scholarly articles. She is currently working on a history of egalitarianism, with a special focus on the social epistemology of moral learning, taking the history of abolitionism as a central case study.

Why? Radio needs your help more than ever; we have to be self-sustaining. Why? Radio has to raise our own money and pay our own bills; we get no money from the University of North Dakota. Not surprisingly, there aren¹t a lot of grants for philosophy out there and there are even fewer for public philosophy. We rely almost entirely on our listeners. So, we are asking you to please donate. Your contribution is tax deductible, and because Why? Radio is so inexpensive to produce (every guest volunteers his or her time), your donation goes a long way. A very long way.

We would also like to offer you an incentive.

For gifts of $25 or more, donors will receive the world jazz CD Lua e Sol from Mark Weinstein (while supplies last). This is the album that contains all of the wonderful music that makes up the show¹s soundtrack.

For gifts of $100 or more, donors will receive a handful of his CDs, remarkable music from Brazil, Cuba, and some straight-ahead jazz. You can visit Mark¹s website and listen to his other music at http://jazzfluteweinstein.com/ 

Donations of $250 or more will get the CD¹s and you¹ll be named on the air as an episode¹s sponsor. You¹ll be a role-model for all of our listeners.

So please visit our website to donate: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Donate.aspx

Because really, if you won¹t support philosophy, who will?

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to Why? Radio.
