Product Details


A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR • One of Library Journal’s “Titles to Watch”
“In these trenchant essays, Kennedy updates previously published pieces that survey hot-button issues and enduring controversies involving race and the law . . .  [A] wide-ranging volume that stoutly defend[s] his centrist stance on race against excesses of the right and left . . . In a time of polarized racial politics, Kennedy’s closely reasoned and humanely argued takes offer an appealing alternative.
—Publishers Weekly

“Kennedy observes that “social relations are complex and messy.” Having lived through several eras, Kennedy calls himself a “Black/Negro/Colored/African American” man born in the year of Brown v. Board of Education. Some of the pieces are of a historical survey nature, [others] the author’s denunciations of “antiracism gone awry” and small-step racial justice laws that “are attentive to the pluralism that infuses American practices.”
       “Sometimes contrarian, sometimes controversial, Kennedy’s arguments merit consideration in a riven discourse.”
—Kirkus Reviews
