Presently A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | NAMED A BEST/MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2017 BY: The Washington Post • Bustle • Men’s Journal • The Chicago Reader • StarTribune • Blavity
“A standout amongst the most forthcoming and burning talks on race … a profoundly genuine, earnest book, which ought to have its spot in the convention of Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and King’s Why We Can’t Wait.” ―The New York Times Book Review
Toni Morrison hails Tears We Cannot Stop as “Carefully composed and capable in a few zones: moving individual memories; significant social investigation; and direction for good recovery. A work to savor.”
Stephen King says: “Here’s a sermon that is as savage as it is clear… If you’re dark, you’ll feel a start of acknowledgment in each passage. In case you’re white, Dyson reveals to you what you have to know?what this white man had to know, in any event. This is a noteworthy accomplishment. I read it and said so be it.”
Short, passionate, abstract, powerful―Tears We Cannot Stop is the book that all Americans who think about the present and long-blazing emergency in race relations will need to peruse.
As the nation thinks about supremacist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, one man’s voice takes off over the rest with conviction and sympathy. In his 2016 New York Times commentary piece “Passing in Black and White,” Michael Eric Dyson moved a country. Presently he keeps on standing up in Tears We Cannot Stop―a provocative and profoundly individual call for change. Dyson contends that on the off chance that we are to gain genuine racial ground we should confront troublesome truths, including speaking the truth about how dark grievance has been disregarded, expelled, or reduced.
