Author Gene Dattel signs Reckoning with Race: America's Failure

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

From the author of Cotton and Race in the Making of America, this balanced, original history of sheds new light on racial issues from from nineteenth century cotton fields to present day ghettos. Reckoning with Race confronts America's most intractable problem—race. The book outlines in a provocative, novel manner American racial issues from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. It explodes myths about the South as America's exclusive racial scapegoat. The book moves to the Great Migration north and the urban ghettos which still plague America.
