Synopsis:
"The kind of book that happens along once in a long while."—The New York Times

First published in 1992 at the height of the furor over the Rodney King incident, Studs Terkel's Race was an immediate bestseller. In a rare and revealing look how at how people in America truly feel about race, Terkel brings out the full complexity of the thoughts and emotions of both blacks and whites, uncovering a fascinating narrative of changing opinions. Preachers and street punks, college students and Klansmen, interracial couples, the nephew of the founder of apartheid, and Emmett Till's mother are among those whose voices appear in Race. In all, nearly one hundred Americans talk openly about attitudes that few are willing to admit in public: feelings about affirmative action, gentrification, secret prejudices, and dashed hopes.


Review:
America's foremost oral historian tackles the most difficult and complicated issue in America today -- race relations -- by interviewing nearly a hundred blacks and whites. The result is a riveting and deeply moving -- and frequently provocative -- look at our country.
