The most damaging mythology found in American History books is the myth that the darkest periods of our country have an end date, that somehow the entire nation somehow changed for the better without atonement. Those of us who grew up in communities with a reflexive attempt to rewrite history to either minimize or undo progress - knew parts of this story. But Dr. Anderson tells the story of just how pervasive the sickness of racism, so much that people would choose poison over family and over opportunity - and provides an abundance of footnotes. This is a hearbreaking but necessary book and it's a good beginning for separating truth from mythology.… (lisätietoja)

This was a really great, there's a lot of history that Anderson dives into and explains how racism has pervaded the American system ever since the end of slavery to deny blacks their rights. I think this should be taught in every single school. It's so important to our history. That being said, the only reason I'm giving this 4.5 instead of 5 stars really comes down to preference. I listened to this on audiobook and at times it felt like listening to a lecture in a history class or listening to a textbook.

This is an intense read, delving into just the surface level of racism in American society and how it came to be where it is at now. It includes many events that get left out of history classes, but is crucial to understanding our society today. The book leaves a lot to think on, as well as ways in which we can move forward from the continuing prevalence of racism. It is one of those books that I will have to reread in a few months to continue to grow and learn new things from.
