Brown - An Erotic History of the Americas

9/23/2002; 59 minutes

Celebrated author Richard Rodriguez examines the color, and the word, brown. For Rodriguez, brown is not a singular color. Brown is evidence of mixture. Brown is shade created by desire - an emblem of the erotic history of America, which began the moment the African and the European met within the Indian eye. Presented as part of the Humanitas Lecture Series at UC Santa Barbara. (#6776)
