On this inaugural episode of The Dream Deferred, we are joined by Lynn Hudson, an Associate Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Chicago and author of West of Jim Crow, The Fight Against California’s Color Line. Lynn Hudson’s research explores the history of racism and resistance in California, and provides an archive for future generations. We tell the untold stories of brave activists and anti-racist organizations that fought to provide equal opportunity for all citizens and thus make the California Dream a reality for everyone.
