Event description
In this SpeakOut ED Talk, Tim Wise will be discussing his new book, Dispatches from the Race War.

About this Event

Join us as we launch Tim Wise’s latest book, a collection of essays on racial flashpoints, white denial, violence, and the manipulation of fear in contemporary America.

With a focus on the Obama and Trump years, Dispatches from the Race War faces the consequences of white supremacy in all its forms including the bigoted undertones of the Tea Party’s backlash, the killing of Trayvon Martin, anti-immigrant hysteria, the rise of openly-avowed white nationalism, the violent policing of African Americans, and more.  The book also explores the racial ramifications of COVID-19, and the widespread protests which followed the police murder of George Floyd.

Dispatches from the Race War reminds us that the story of our country is the history of racial conflict, and that our future may depend on how—or if—we can resolve it. “To accept racism is quintessentially American,” writes Wise, “to rebel against it is human. Be human.” 

Buy the book from City Lights at 30% off! All purchases come with a bookplate sticker signed by Tim Wise.
