Race and Coalition
Race and Coalition is volume 1, number 2 of the journal Race/Ethnicity. It reflects continuing attention by scholars and advocates to the theoretical and practical features of coalition building. Contributors engage topics that include the challenges and opportunities racially marginalized groups face in trying to work together, the mobilization of transnational networks in multiracial organizing, the simultaneous use and critique of "white privilege," multiracial organizing against the rights of other marginalized populations, and the unintended effects of coalition building.

"With its first issue, Race/Ethnicity establishes itself at the rich intersection of race and ethnicity studies. In our new world, where boundaries seem to grow more fluid by the day, this journal will be at the forefront of our crucial, global conversation about who we are and where we are going. Race/Ethnicity is scholarship at its best." Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
