As the country grapples with racist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, one man's voice is heard above the rest. In his New York Times op-ed piece "Death in Black and White," Michael Eric Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues to speak out in Tears We Cannot Stop—a provocative and deeply personal call for change. Dyson argues that if we are to make real racial progress we must face difficult truths, including being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed, or discounted. Short, emotional, literary, powerful—this is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read.
“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race . . . a deeply serious, urgent book, which should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin's 'The Fire Next Time' and King's ‘Why We Can't Wait.’”—The New York Times Book Review
"Readers will find searing moments in Tears We Cannot Stop, when Dyson's words proves unforgettable . . . But more than education, Dyson wants a reckoning."—The Washington Post
