The History of White People in America

The history of how skin became race, and race became power.

Through musical animated shorts, The History of White People in America examines how skin color has come to define race in our country. The shorts capture the truth of what it means to be American – that “us” and “them” are constantly redefined, that our racial history deserves contemplation, and that above all else we are bound by our rich differences in experience and identity.
