Seen through the lens of major flashpoints during the Obama and Trump years, Dispatches from the Race War faces the consequences of white supremacy in all its forms. This includes a discussion of the bigoted undertones of the Tea Party's backlash, the killing of Trayvon Martin, current day anti-immigrant hysteria, the rise of openly avowed white nationalism, the violent policing of African Americans, and more. Wise devotes a substantial portion of the book to explore the racial ramifications of COVID-19, and the widespread protests which followed the police murder of George Floyd.About the author: Tim Wise, one of the nation’s most prominent anti-racism educators and authors. He has spent the past twenty-five years teaching about issues of systemic racism and methods for dismantling racial inequity. He is the author of nine books, including his forthcoming essay collection, Dispatches from the Race War, due out in December from City Lights. Other books include Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority and his highly acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.
