quality trade paperback (softcover)
Jeffrey Dean Swain has written a series of essays. Each hinges upon a quotation about race that serves as a springboard for discussion. The essays are meant to provoke thought, not just about the issue of race but also about the culture that continues to downplay racism's ill effects. A real discussion of race is worthy of time.
Much has yet to be said about the worldwide struggle of people of the African Diaspora. The story has not yet been fully told. We, who have lived and do live in this racial phenomenon, must frame the discussion. This cannot be left to anyone alse. Moreover, these essays are meant to challenge silence. Silence in the face of evil is complicity. I cannot be silent any longer.
