Center for Race and Ethnicity.

About the Center for Race and Ethnicity

From its earliest years, the Manhattan Institute has been keenly aware of how racial issues touch on almost every aspect of American life. The Center for Race and Ethnicity was created to infuse the debate on race in America with the Manhattan Institute's profound belief in individual liberty and our commitment to free markets as the best guarantor of freedom and prosperity.

The Center for Race and Ethnicity's work garnered national attention and served as a guide for reform in several key policy debates including education, welfare reform, and prisoner re-entry. In particular, the Center for Race and Ethnicity's books and reports had a profound impact on the debate, providing much-needed data and sound policy proposals that helped steer reform.

Several of CRE's books received national acclaim and prestigious awards. In 2007 the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation named civil rights & education researchers Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom as recipients of the Fordham Prizes for Excellence in Education in recognition of their work on race and education. John McWhorter's book, Winning the Race: Beyond the Crisis in Black America (Gotham Books) was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work in Non-Fiction. Herman Badillo's influential 2007 book, One Nation, One Standard, was hailed by reviewers as "a call to arms for Hispanics" that helped to kickstart the debate over assimilation. Kay Hymowitz's Marriage and Caste in America, which drove the national conversation on the impact of out-of-wedlock births and the creation of the underclass, was called the "best single book on the damage being done to our nation by the explosion of divorce and nonmarital births since the 1960s."

The Manhattan Institute also helped produce early works by eminent scholars such as Thomas Sowell's Markets and Minorities (Basic Books, 1981) and Walter Williams' The State Against Blacks (McGrawHill, 1982), for which the Institute also produced as a PBS documentary. In addition, under our Book Fellowship program, the Manhattan Institute supported the publication of Linda Chavez's Out of the Barrio: Toward a New Politics of Hispanic Assimilation (Basic Books, 1991) and Peter Salins' Assimilation, American Style (Basic Books, 1997).

The Manhattan Institute continues to serve the legacy of the Center for Race and Ethnicity through its work on education, urban reform, and prisoner re-entry, relying on the in-depth research, groundbreaking proposals, and thought-provoking analysis CRE provided.
