From Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and commentator Eugene Robinson comes a paradigm-shifting book about race in America.
Eugene Robinson joined the Washington Post in 1980 and has served as London bureau chief and foreign editor. Currently, he is an associate editor and columnist. He has been a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, and he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary in 2009. The author of Coal to Cream and Last Dance in Havana, Eugene appears frequently on MSNBC as a political analyst. Alan Bomar Jones is an international stage actor who has appeared in over sixty professional theatrical shows, performing from Canada to California. His offstage credits include two made-for-TV movies, several independent films, and various local commercials. As an independent voice-over artist, Alan works from his home producing books and commercials.
Two books examine the current black experience in the U.S. Former Newsweek columnist Ellis Cose finds younger African-Americans more optimistic than past generations, while Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson observes the "splintering" of black America. Both speak with host Michel Martin. More at NPR.org
