Product Details

Praise

Sellout is brisk and enjoyable, no small feat given the density of its ideas. . . . Worth reading for the light it shines on many subtleties of black history.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Thought-provoking. . . . [Kennedy offers] illuminating evidence that, despite great marks of progress, race’s stranglehold on the nation’s collective conscious remains as strong as ever.”—The Washington Post


“Fresh. . . . Elegant and open-minded. . . . Sellout does a great deal to complicate the politics of racial betrayal.”—Salon.com

“A cool, clean case against the use of a backwards epithet that discourages something black America can hardly do without-coherent and original thought.”—The New York Sun
