Radical Reads for 2017

We're entering a new era (or at least, an era where prejudices and hatred are getting more public support from the establishment), and hopefully these books will broaden your ideas and understanding of race, class and sexuality in America.

I haven't added these books in any particular order, so please vote and add as you see fit. Try to access these through your local, independent bookseller (http://slingshot.tao.ca/contacts/) or library!
