Whats Going On by Nathan McCall

Current Affairs / African American Studies Filled with essays that challenge Americas myths.... His easy reading style unsuspectingly pricks the conscience. --USA Today ith the same personal authority and exhilarating directness he brought to his account of his passage from a prison cell to the newsroom of The Washington Post, Nathan McCall delivers a series of front-line reports on the state of the races in todays America. The resulting volume is guaranteed to shake the assumptions of readers of every pigmentation and political allegiance. In Whats Going On, McCall adds up the hidden costs of the stereotype of black athletic prowess, which tells African American teenagers that they can only succeed on the white mans terms. He introduces a fresh perspective to the debates on gangsta rap and sexual violence. He indicts the bigotry of white churches and the complacency of the black suburban middle class, celebrates the heroism of Muhammad Ali, and defends the truth-telling of Alice Walker. Engaging, provocative, and utterly fearless, here is a commentator to reckon with, addressing our most persistent divisions in a voice of stinging immediacy. [These essays] reinforce the moral authority McCall [brings] to the issue of Americas racial schisms. --The New York Times Book Review Straightforward, quick-moving [and] erudite. --Philadelphia Inquirer
