Before the Age of Reason: A Memoir of Racism (Paperback)
If my life is to have meaning in a fractured and polarized United States, I must acknowledge the legacy of racism that has brought me to this moment and that underlies my own attitudes. I have a responsibility to hold myself to account for my own racism. This memoir is my attempt to do so. I have tried to see clearly the racism that formed me and its continuation into the present. Only by becoming conscious can I change and contribute to a more just society.
