"In The Color of America Has Changed: How Racial Diversity Shaped Civil Rights Reform in California, 1941-1978, Mark Brilliant examines California's history to illustrate how the civil rights era was a truly nationwide and multiracial phenomenon-one that was shaped and complicated by the presence of not only blacks and whites, but also Mexican Americans, Japanese Americans, and Chinese Americans, among others."

In this timely book talk, Brilliant will discuss his research and the ways in which his findings have changed our understanding of the Civil Rights Movement and the exigencies of race relations in the United States. Mark Brilliant is an Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley.
