Margaret Kimberley presents Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents
Prejudential is a concise, authoritative exploration of America's relationship with race and black Americans through the lens of the presidents who are elected to represent and govern all of its people. Over the course of 45 chapters—one for each president—Editor and Senior Columnist for Black Agenda Report Margaret Kimberley examines the condition of black America through the attitudes and actions of the highest elected official in the country. This informative and engaging guide illustrates the merits and especially the shortcomings of even those presidents considered more progressive than their contemporaries on race issues. By casting sunlight on an aspect of American history that is largely overlooked, Prejudential aims to increase awareness in a manner that will facilitate discussion and understanding. Kimberley shares her impactful new book with a visual presentation and talk.
