The 2017 OWL Award Winner in the Education category!
This groundbreaking New York Times bestselling anthology of essays and poems on race in America brings together the most important voices of a new generation. National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward expertly compiles narratives from influential thinkers including Carol Anderson, Jericho Brown, Edwidge Danticat, Kevin Young, Claudia Rankine, and Honoree Jeffers to speak on contemporary racism and race.
This book was envisioned as a reply to the revolutionary collection of essays of The Fire Next Time in which author James Baldwin writes, “the country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon.” In response to these words, the various narratives reflect on the past, present, and future of race in America. Though we have made substantial progress in the past fifty years, America is still a long way away from a post racial society. We must confront this truth if we want to continue working towards change.
