It's been more than four decades since the Civil Rights movement ended racial segregation in America. Yet few would say African-Americans are now fully integrated – or assimilated. In this hour produced by Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge, African American writers talk about race….and how black history – from segregation to the Great Migration to the culture of hip hop – continues to shape our racial conversation today.  Program features Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson, Nobel laureate Toni Morrison, NPR’s Michele Norris and others.
