The rooster's egg by Patricia J Williams ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these pages we encounter figures and images plucked from headlines -from Tonya Harding to Lani Guinier, Rush Limbaugh to Hillary Clinton, Clarence Thomas to Dan Quayle - and see how their portrayal, encoding certain stereotypes, often reveals more about us than about them. What are we really talking about when we talk about welfare mothers, for instance? Why is calling someone a "redneck" okay, and what does that say about our society? When young women appear on Phil Donahue to represent themselves as Jewish American Princesses, what else are they doing? These are among the questions Williams considers as she uncovers the shifting, often covert rules of conversation that determine who "we" are as a nation

Seeing a color-blind future : the paradox of race by Patricia J Williams ( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these five pieces (which she gave as the prestigious Reith Lectures for the BBC) Patricia J. Williams asks how we might achieve a world where color doesn't matter - where whiteness is not equated with normalcy and blackness with exoticism and danger. Drawing on her own experience, Williams delineates the great divide between "the poles of other people's imagination and the nice calm center of oneself where dignity resides," and discusses how it might be bridged as a first step toward resolving racism. Williams offers us a new starting point - "a sensible and sustained consideration" - from which we might begin to deal honestly with the legacy and current realities of our prejudices. Some forty years ago, James Baldwin informed White America: "We know more about you than you know about us." Today, Patricia Williams sets out to repair this failing
The alchemy of race and rights by Patricia J Williams ( Book )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Blacks & Jews ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the civil rights movement, African Americans and Jews fought together for equal rights. But differences in economic status eventually led to divisive positions on issues such as affirmative action in education, Louis Farrakhan's philosophies, and even a perceived Jewish influence in Hollywood. In this program, scholars and critics probe the history and psychology of the social marginalization shared by blacks and Jews. Key conflicts, such as New York's Crown Heights riots and the blockbusting in Chicago that pitted Jewish homeowners against black home buyers, are examined from the perspectives of activists on both sides. With Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Cornel West, and others
