The Film

What is "race"? Race: The Power of an Illusion demonstrates how race is both a biological myth and a social invention. The documentary series uncovers the history of race, the "science" that justified it, and traces how these beliefs took such a furious hold on our imaginations, arguing that while race may be a biological fiction, the consequences of racism are very real.
