AMERICAN WHITELASH A Changing Nation and the Cost of Progress

by | Read by Wesley Lowery

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Since the 2008 election of our first African American president, incidents of hate crimes and profiles of white supremacist groups have increased dramatically. In this audiobook, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wesley Lowery asks how, after 400 years, can white supremacism and extreme racism continue to be driving forces in America? With a mostly neutral delivery underscored by an understandable hint of bafflement, he takes listeners on a jarring tour of racial and anti-Semitic violence that ranges from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Overland Park, Kansas, and to Hayward, California. The repeated examples of brutal beatings, murders, and shootings are not easy to hear. But maybe they're necessary. Lowery doesn't draw us a map of how to get out of a racist society. He just quietly says, "Here we are." B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
