    Description

    Carol Anderson's White Rage took the world by storm, landing on the New York Times best-seller list and best book of the year lists from New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and Chicago Review of Books. It launched her as an in-demand commentator on contemporary race issues for national print and television media and garnered her an invitation to speak to the Democratic Congressional Caucus. This compelling young adult adaptation brings her ideas to a new audience. 

    When America achieves milestones of progress toward full and equal black participation in democracy, the systemic response is a consistent racist backlash that rolls back those wins. We Are Not Yet Equal examines five of these moments: the end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with Jim Crow laws; the promise of new opportunities in the North during the Great Migration was limited when blacks were physically blocked from moving away from the South; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 led to laws that disenfranchised millions of African American voters and a War on Drugs that disproportionally targeted blacks; and the election of President Obama led to an outburst of violence including the death of black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as the election of Donald Trump. 

    This YA adaptation is written in an approachable narrative style that provides teen listeners with additional context to these historic moments.

    Commentaires

    "Told in the narrator Robin Miles's studied, authoritative (though sometimes slow) delivery, the audiobook manages to allow, rather than force, the subject's devastating emotional undertone. Miles, who has narrated works by Roxane Gay, bell hooks and N. K. Jemisin, excels at a technically perfect Standard American dialect but interjects just enough slightly sarcastic pauses and subtly acerbic inflections to emphasize the true meaning of the text." (The New York Times Book Review)

    Great

    I was never taught most of the historically damning information given in this book. The sources are good. While the message is definitely biased, and for a good reason, I find it very informative and not excessively emotional.

    Required Reading/Listening

    This book is a great point of reference when mapping about the issue of systemic racism and where it comes from. It clearly outlines how we got to where we are regarding the state of race relations in the United States.

    Thanks Siri

    the content was very informative but the reader's clipped delivery sounds like a computer i.e. Siri
