Audio MP3 CD
Description:A bold and impassioned meditation on injustice in our country that punctures the illusion of a postracial America and reveals it as place where authoritarianism looms large. In nine provocative and deeply personal essays Howard Bryant confronts the dangerous narratives that are shaping the current dialogue in mainstream culture, where African Americans continue to navigate the sharp edges of whiteness. The topics Bryant takes on include the militarization of sports, the myth of integration, the erasure of black identity as a condition of success, and the kleptocracy that has forced America to ask itself if its beliefs of freedom and democracy are more than just words.
