Nell Irvin Painter - The History of White People
Her latest book, The History of White People, was featured on The Colbert Report and received rave reviews in the US and England. In this conversation with María Hinojosa, Painter explains what drives her, how the idea of beauty has changed in America, and why she doesn’t believe race exists.
Maria on her interviwe with Nell Painter:
"I am most in awe not of celebrity but of intellect. And what a mind Nell Painter has. Her curiosity about the human race and how it functions means she looks at things through a fascinating prism. The History of White People, her most famous book turns things upside down and therefore, the ideas stay with you. On a personal level, I love that this accomplished Princeton professor has become an art student in her older years. Her desire to confront her own creativity is fearless and inspiring."
