13 Myths About Affirmative Action: A Special Series on a Public Policy Under Siege
This 13- part series provides listeners with a guided tour of the current controversy about affirmative action. Each installment in this sequential series is structured to explore a widely held belief or assertion about affirmative action. Upon closer inspection, each belief is shown to be false, distorted, or unsupported by the evidence. As each belief is revealed to be a myth and debunked, the ensuing discussion re-analyzes the issue by offering information, research, and personal accounts from a range of commentators, including academics, activists and every day citizens. The series was premiered on the Michael Eric Dyson Show and was written and produced in collaboration with Kimberle Williams Crenshaw and the African American Policy Forum. This series is a project of the Affirmative Action Research and Policy Consortium, a project of the African American Policy Forum.

The partnership between AAPF and The Michael Eric Dyson Show was a great success! Dr. Michael Eric Dyson had this to say:

As a native Detroiter, I feel a strong obligation to combat the profound misinformation about affirmative action and the quest for racial and social justice. The forces of regression must not prove more determined or prepared than are the forces for good. I am thrilled to join with the nation’s leading expert on questions of affirmative action and their legal and political implications, Kimberle Crenshaw, in analyzing the crucial issues at hand in Michigan. This is a critical juncture, and we at The Michael Eric Dyson Show are eager to join the fight for justice on this critical battleground.
