's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, black-experience

At first I thought maybe I had read this book before, but in fact I just think that the ideas formed the basis of my Black Studies program in college. I appreciate that this book is written without a lot of jargon and does a great job at explaining institutional racism. It's very focused on electing black politicians, but also speaks out against capitalism in general. While written in 1967, many of these problems are still very relevant today.
