“This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.”
"This is not a history book. I repeat, this is not a history book. At least not like the ones you're used to reading in school."
I almost don't want to tell you what happened because I've told you what happened a lot already. But if you were to guess that White people started to perpetuate lies about Black people being inferior to keep the world of racism spinning, you'd be right.

He explores the events, influential figures and movements that have propagated racist ideas. Reynolds distinguished between racism, segregationism, assimilationism, and antiracism. The common narrative of US History if challenged and the full story is told.
