15th Erase Racism Carnival

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 30, 2007

July’s Erase Racism Carnival is up at RaceWire:

Every month, a different blog gathers posts from throughout cyberspace that explore issues of racial justice. The goal is to enhance the discussion of race online and connect bloggers working hard to make that happen. We thank everyone who submitted pieces for this, the 15th carnival.
