Life, no matter where you come from or where you're going, IS colorful.  That is part of the inspiration for COLORS - a program highlighted as the second segment of a three-part series on race relations in the United States in 2013.

Beyond the 99 percent versus the one percent...beyond Republican or Democrat...beyond Catholic or Muslim or Southern Baptist or Methodist or Jewish...beyond all that there is a more basic difference and inequality that still exists in this country.  That difference and inequality is between so-called 'whites' and blacks or even browns.

Dr. Henrie M. Treadwell knows all about that. She is the author of a book called "Beyond Stereotypes in Black and White: How Everyday Leaders Can Build Healthier Opportunities for African-American Boys and Men."
