Elegantly written, Tears We Cannot Stop is powerfulmoving personal recollections, profound cultural analysis, and guidance for moral redemption. A work to relish.  Toni Morrison

We are living through one of the most challenging periods in modern American  history. The rash of police killings of unarmed black people, along with the hate killings of black citizens, has sparked the largest protests in the streets since the height of the civil rights movement.  

Heres a sermon thats as fierce as it is lucid. It shook me up, but in a good way. This is how it works if youre black in America, this is what happens, and this is how it feels. If youre black, youll feel a spark of a recognition in every paragraph. If youre white, Dyson tells you what you need to knowwhat this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement Stephen King
