More Description

Why has a nation founded upon precepts of freedom and universal humanity continually produced, through its preoccupation with race, a divided and constrained populace? Scott Malcomson's search for an answer took him across the country -- to the Cherokee Nation, an all-black town, and a white supremacist enclave in Oklahoma -- back through the tangled red-white-and-black history of America from colonial times onward, and to his own childhood in racially fractured Oakland, California. By not only recounting our shared tragicomedy of race but also helping us to own it -- even to embrace it -- this important book offers us a way at last to move beyond it.
