80. Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson

Written in the form of a sermon Michael Eric Dyson addresses white Americans and their role in the continued racist society we live. He talks about the way America can truly face it’s racist past and make true reparations to bring lasting change in the future. It’s a really good and well-written book. I read it with a diversity reading group at work and it sparked a lot of really great conversations. Unfortunately as with all books like this I fear that the people who really need to read it the most won’t and mostly Michael Eric Dyson will wind up preaching to the choir. I give it a 9 out of 10.
