Why People Sometimes Dehumanize Others The Anisfield-Wolf Awards recognize books that contribute to our understanding of racism and our appreciation of cultural diversity. This year's two non-fiction winners join us Thursday morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas. One examines the human tendency to dehumanize others; the other examines views of the civil war at the time of the civil rights struggle. Join host Mike McIntyre. Then stay tuned for the fiction winner and the recipient of the Anisfield-Wolf lifetime achievement award on Around Noon.
