Praise for The Debt

“A tour de force…Heartfelt, impassioned.”—Emerge

“Incisive…keenly observed, perceptively written.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“In a manner strikingly reminiscent of James Baldwin, Robinson combines acute insight, attention to the obvious but overlooked, and unpretentious breadth of vision.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Provocative…Lays out the logic behind reparations and addresses the issue from an economic standpoint.”—Chicago Sun-Times
