"For critical readers wondering whether racial reconciliation is possible in the United States, whether many in the country are committed to curing the nation’s racial divisions, and what strategies might move the nation towards healing, Ogletree and Sarat’s new volume presents an extraordinary collection of modern essayists, looking back at de Tocqueville and Myrdal and forward to myriad lingering barriers to equal citizenship in American life. This compelling book lays bare the many challenges to and opportunities for reconciliation in this age of systemic racial disadvantage."
—Bryan K. Fair, author of Notes of a Racial Caste Baby
"At a time when we sorely need it, this book challenges us not only to confront the painful state of race relations in this country but also to do the difficult work necessary to heal the deep wounds caused by our divisions. This collection of essays, written by a dynamic group of preeminent scholars, tackles some of the toughest social problems of our day, from discrimination and mistreatment of black and brown youth in public schools and in the criminal justice system to seemingly impenetrable segregation in the pews of churches across the country on Sunday morning."
—Montré D. Carodine, Professor of Law, The University of Alabama School of Law
