Color blind societal practices should be examined as we attempt to establish a more culturally balanced world. That is the premise of this work, which also offers practical application of the suggested theories. Color blind practices in the arts are connected to color blind theory and criticism in the social sciences. This is a well-thought out argument for the monitoring of practices and policy making around color blind ideals. There is no attempt to dismantle or discredit color blind practices. Emphasis is placed on understanding the voices of dissension, weighing out the interests of its proponents, and finding a middle ground that also preserves African American artistic culture. This is a valuable cross-disciplinary resource for academics and practitioners.
