Professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva's path-breaking work focuses on addressing how, in a society that imagines itself as color-blind, racism remains a collective, structural phenomenon that is fundamentally about racial domination. Amongst his many awards and accolades, in 2011, Dr. Bonilla-Silva was given the Cox-Johnson-Frazier Award by the American Sociological Association in recognition of his "work in the intellectual traditions of these three African American Scholars." Professor Bonilla-Silva received his Doctorate in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
