Say it Loud: Middle-class Blacks Talk about Racism and what to Do about it
How widespread is racism? Is it confined to the high-profile acts we read about in the papers, or does it seep into our everyday actions? In Say It Loud, Annie Barnes has interviewed nearly 200 black men and women, mostly college students from middle-class families, to find out what their experiences of racism have been. She has woven their stories into a gripping narrative that explores the pressures and pain faced by young black men and women in their daily lives -- going shopping, going to school, working, encounters with the police -- and how they have handled these experiences. Barnes adds to their accounts some simple yet profound ideas on what black parents and young people -- and sympathetic whites as well -- can do personally to counter acts of racism.
