Review:

This wide-ranging collection of essays by 15 scholars illustrates that there are many African American readings and responses to race. In "Home," Nobel laureate Toni Morrison muses on her uses of African American speech and the question of "how to be free and situated; how to convert a racist house into a race specific yet nonracist house." Harvard professor Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham's "Rethinking Vernacular Culture" details the affirmative role of Afro-American religion and blues-oriented race records of the 1920s and 1930s. Williams College's David Lionel Smith, in "What Is Black Culture?", gives a well-nuanced critique of the contradictory and limiting definitions of "blackness," while activist-educator Angela Y. Davis's "Race and Criminality" shows how blacks have become a racially criminalized commodity in America's rapidly expanding prison industry. The House That Race Built is a strong, intelligent weapon against racism. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Review:

Essays contributed by Toni Morrison and others who attended the Race Matters Conference at Princeton University provide powerful insights into racism and democracy. White supremacism now operates under quasi-respectable, coded meanings: this identifies and analyzes these hidden patterns of discrimination. -- Midwest Book Review
