Publisher's Summary

In these provocative, powerful essays, acclaimed writer/journalist Jeff Chang (Can't Stop Won't Stop, Who We Be) takes an incisive and wide-ranging look at the recent tragedies and widespread protests that have shaken the country. Through deep reporting with key activists and thinkers, passionately personal writing, and distinguished cultural criticism, We Gon' Be Alright links #BlackLivesMatter to #OscarsSoWhite, Ferguson to Washington, DC, the Great Migration to resurgent nativism. Chang explores the rise and fall of the idea of diversity, the roots of student protest, changing ideas about Asian Americanness, and the impact of a century of racial separation in housing. He argues that resegregation is the unexamined condition of our time, the undoing of which is key to moving the nation forward to racial justice and cultural equity.

Weak Voice Narration

The author mentioned some things I didn't know and it was interesting enough to take note of several things he said, but he doesn't have a good reading voice. His voice wasn't well modulated.

Also, his topics seemed a bit randomly put together. I don't know if I would recommend this book. It's not horrible but it's just short of good.

However, I do truly appreciate the author's willingness to bring attention to resegregation and other indignities facing people of color in America.

Amazingly insightful

Jeff Chang has done a lot of good work here and I think it is a brilliant work. It goes without saying that even though he is critiquing the system he is still complicit in it. But he shows a side of the modern conversation that I haven't yet heard articulated so well.

Maybe not the greatest entry point into this conversation for most people, but an amazing work.
