Reviews

Michael Eric Dyson is one of the nation's most thoughtful and critical thinkers in social inequality and the demands of justice. Long Time Coming, his latest formidable, compelling book, has much to offer on our nation's crucial need for racial reckoning and the way forward. --Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy

Michael Eric Dyson's Long Time Coming: Reckoning with Race in America, is a brilliant and fiercely eloquent work that traces the roots of racism from slavery and Jim Crow to police brutality and the plague of Black killings in our own day. In gorgeous prose and erudite analysis, Dyson argues that both the trap of white comfort and the peril of cancel culture thwart a genuine reckoning with race in our country. Long Time Coming is a searing cry for racial justice from one of our nation's greatest thinkers and most compelling prophets. --Robin DiAngelo, bestselling author of White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
