Reckoning with Race confronts America's most intractable problem and why the nation cannot have a frank discussion about race. It examines racial issues through black voices. The book outlines in a provocative, novel manner the black America’s experience from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. It explodes myths about the South as America's exclusive racial scapegoat. The book moves to the Great Migration north, the urban ghettos, and current events and conditions.
