The climate of racism today is alarming at best, frightening at worst. With the current administration in the White House, white supremacy has raged. Akiba Solomon and Kenrya Rankin, editors of Colorline–the news website where race matters–have edited the must-read book, How We Fight White Supremacy: A Field Guide To Black Resistance.
With contributions from an array of splendid authors, including 2020 NBCC honoree Kiese Laymon, Harry Belafonte, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Damon Young and many others, the book is a “celebration of Black resistance, from protests to art to sermons to joy that offers a blueprint for the fight for freedom and justice, with ideas of how each of us can contribute.”
Yes, an important book…and the authors will add consequential depth discussing it at the 2020 National Book Club Conference.
