By Booker T. Williams
In a country like America – built on the backs of diverse people – the subject of race/racism and its cancerous, miasmic climate renders certain races as ugly conditions. In “The Ugly Color of Race in America”, author Booker T. Williams, Jr. reveals the unflattering strokes with which we’ve painted racial differences in our country.
When the first colored man was elected to our country’s highest office in 2008, the grotesqueness of our society’s supposed progressive attitude toward race emerged distinctly and indelibly. This and other cases of blatant racism serve as the exigency for this timely book. Join Williams, who parlays his own racially charged experiences with salient moments in American history, to advance a powerful narrative and stimulate meaningful discourse on the subject of race and racism in America.
