Discussing Race And Identity Politics W/ Filmmaker Eli Steele

How does America's longstanding preoccupation with race and identity affect our politics? Documentarian Eli Steele's new film "How Jack Became Black" explores just that, analyzing identity politics in America while drawing from Steele's own life experiences coming from a multiracial family. On this installment of "Against the Current," Proft and Steele discuss not only Steele's acclaimed film, but how racial identity shapes political discourse, and what the detrimental effects are of trying to put people into boxes.
