The Big Lie
Election Chaos, Political Opportunism, and the State of American Politics After 2020
Jonathan Lemire - 2022-07-26
Goodreads Rating
Jonathan Lemire uncovers that “The Big Lie,” as it’s been termed, isn’t just about the 2020 election. It's become a political philosophy that has only further divided the two parties. Donald Trump first tried it out in 2016, at an August rally in Ohio. He said that perhaps he wouldn’t accept the election results in his race against Hillary Clinton,...

The Movement Made Us takes literature to a momentous Southern Black space to which I honestly never thought a book could take us. This is literally the Movement that made us and both Davids love us whole here with a creation that is as ingenious as it is soulfully sincere. Stunning. --Kiese Laymon, author of HeavyA dynamic family exchange that pivo...

Anti-Intellectualism in American Life book cover
Anti-Intellectualism in American Life
Richard Hofstadter - 1966-02-12 (first published in 1963)
Goodreads Rating
Anti-intellectualism in American Life was awarded the 1964 Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction. It is a book which throws light on many features of the American character. Its concern is not merely to portray the scorners of intellect in American life, but to say something about what the intellectual is, and can be, as a force in a democratic society.Hof...

What began in spring 2020 as local protests in response to the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police quickly exploded into a massive nationwide movement.

A Place Like Mississippi
A Journey Through a Real and Imagined Literary Landscape
W. Ralph Eubanks - 2021-03-16
Goodreads Rating
There is a palpable connection to the landscapes of Mississippi displayed in the work of the state’s many lauded writers. This connection to the land runs deep—across onerous lines of class, gender and race—spanning generations of authors birthed in the Magnolia State. It’s difficult to read Faulkner, Welty, Wright, and Ward and not come away with ...

W. E. B. du Bois - 2016-07-14 (first published in 1903)
Goodreads Rating
This landmark book is a founding work in the literature of black protest. W. E. B. Du Bois (1868–1963) played a key role in developing the strategy and program that dominated early 20th-century black protest in America. In this collection of essays, first published together in 1903, he eloquently affirms that it is beneath the dignity of a human be...

Teaching W.E.B. DuBois's _The Souls of Black Folk_ tomorrow with @imaniperry. I reread the book ever year, and I am always struck by the continued relevance of what DuBois referred to as "two arguments unanswered and, indeed, unanswerable." 1/      source
