C ALL FOR PAPERS FOR SPECIAL ISSUE ON RACE AND HEALTH Du Bois Review: Social Science Research on Race “The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line.” With those words, W.E. Du Bois discussed the racial progress in the United States and foreshadowed the critical part race would continue to play in understanding inequality, mobility, and quality of life in American society. This quote serves as a springboard for this special call of the Du Bois Review (DBR) soliciting abstracts for papers that describe novel and exciting research directions for studying how race and ethnicity affect health in the twenty-first century.  That is, what are the next big ideas that can potentially unpack how and why race is so strongly associated with physical and mental health?
