Product Details


“…extraordinary and representative.”
“Drayton’s tale is told with verve and honesty.”
—USA Today

“Drayton has written an engaging book, which is one of my favorite kinds to read. There are things I agree with, there are things I disagree with, there are things that are new to me. I hope everyone reads it for that reason.”
Trevor Noah, The Daily Show

“Drayton’s rich storytelling reveals the complex roles ‘victims’ and ‘abusers’ play in ‘American racial stratification’ and offers a path toward healing for both. Those seeking to better understand the long-term effects of racism should pick this up.”
Publishers Weekly

“Drayton examines her experiences as a Black woman in both countries, and how her personal story connects to the broader history of white supremacy.”

“Drayton explores the ramifications of racism that span generations, global white supremacy, and the pitfalls of American culture.”

“A welcome addition to the literature on race in America…. Drayton has a powerful story and the voice to do it justice.”
Kirkus Reviews
