Imani Perry Discusses Her Recent Book

The market has been flooded with books about race and racism in recent years. Few of them, however, have been able to illuminate this complex subject with the interdisciplinary breath and depth of scholarship that Princeton Professor Imani Perry brings to her latest book: More Beautiful and More Terrible: The Embrace and Trancendence of Racial Inequality in the United States. Perry’s work demolishes the myth of a post-racial America, illuminates the organic nature of racism and its evolution beyond the simple black/white dichotomy historically grounded in cultural stereotypes and pseudo-science, and helps us identify and recognize the subtle and insidious systems of inequality and discrimination that continue to operate in the United States.

In the link below, Professor Perry shares how the book was conceived and her wish that it helps to form and inform new strategies and tactics in the struggle to deracinate race and dismantle white supremacy.
