Product description

Review


"Offers razor-sharp insights into American history, politics, and art. This is a feast of insights."

--
Publisher's Weekly (Starred)

A thoughtful, elegantly argued contribution to the literature of Black lives in America."
--
Kirkus (Starred)

"Dyson's essays and writings address a rich assortment of thought-provoking topics... an expansive and accessible overview of the inquiries of an important social and cultural thinker."
--
Booklist

"In this extensive and thorough journey, Dyson continues to amaze and amuse on topics surrounding African American roles in entertainment. A thought-provoking vision from one of our country's national treasures."
--
Detroit Free Press

"Michael Eric Dyson has been a lodestar for my generation: a brilliant intellectual whose accessible scholarship bridges the university and popular culture... Entertaining Race is a true gift to our culture."
--
Candace Parker, WNBA champion, 2x WNBA MVP

For over a quarter century, Michael Eric Dyson has wrestled with critical race theory as a professor, analyzed racial injustice as a social critic, preached a progressive vision of Christianity as a preacher, and engaged in principled resistance as a social activist. Entertaining Race is a compelling and timely meditation on some of the most important issues of our time.
--
Kimberlé Crenshaw, Executive Director of the African American Policy Forum

"Entertaining Race captures the same brilliance and passion for performance that not only motivates Dyson to observe, but which inspires him to perform at a high level on many stages himself as a thinker, writer, lecturer, preacher, speaker and activist. This is vintage Dyson."
--
Audra McDonald, Tony, Grammy and Emmy award winning actress and singer

With Entertaining Race Dyson lifts the veil of what's really going on in our society--the good and the bad, but he manages to do that in a very compelling way.
--
Bryan Cranston, Oscar-nominated actor and winner of Golden Globe, Tony and SAG Awards

"In the tradition of Dr. King--the greatest American preacher and public intellectual--Dr. Dyson summons the best in the American spirit, diagnosing the sickness that divides us while employing head, heart and hands to both call forth and construct a moral vision of 'beloved community.'"
--
Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock
