The manner of George Floyd's murder--his asphyxiation at the hands of police in the midst of a deadly global respiratory pandemic--appears to have moved some white bystanders to arrive at tough realizations about the realities of white supremacy in the United States. But, author Michael Eric Dyson asks, will this moment actually manifest in meaningful change? This author-narrated audiobook situates our nation's current white supremacist systems within a larger, and often unacknowledged, historical context of antiblackness. As a narrator, the reverence and tenderness Dyson communicates in his letters--addressed to victims of racist violence Elijah McClain, Emmett Till, Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor, Hadiya Pendleton, Sandra Bland, and the Rev. Clementa Pinckney--invoke the experience of listening in on a holy epistle. Don't miss this. G.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
