This presentation will discuss Interest Convergence in a historical context of American Society. Critical Race Theory is a body of scholarship steeped in radical activism that seeks to explore and challenge the prevalence of racial inequality in society (Rollick and Gillborn, 2011). Interest Convergence – Bell (1980) contends that “the interest of blacks in achieving racial equality will be accommodated only when it converges with the interests of whites.”
