**One of The Washington Post's "Books to Read in 2017"****One of Bustle's 17 of the Best Nonfiction Books Coming in January 2017****One of Men's Journal's 7 Best Books of January**"Elegantly written, Tears We Cannot Stop is powerful in several areas: moving personal recollections; profound cultural analysis; and guidance for moral redemption. A work to relish." ―Toni Morrison"Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid. It shook me up, but in a good way. This is how it works if you’re black in America, this is what happens, and this is how it feels. If you’re black, you’ll feel a spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know―what this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen." ―Stephen KingAs the country grapples with racist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, one man's voice is heard above the rest. In his New York Times op-ed piece "Death in Black and White," Michael Eric Dyson moved a nation. Isabel Wilkerson called it "an unfiltered Marlboro of black pain" and "crushingly powerful," and Beyonce tweeted about it. Now he continues to speak out in Tears We Cannot Stop―a provocative and deeply personal call for change. Dyson argues that if we are to make real racial progress we must face difficult truths, including being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed, or discounted. Short, emotional, literary, powerful―this is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read.

5.0 Powerful and thought provoking!
Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America - Michael Eric Dyson Ok, this a huge departure from what I usually read, but I'm making a point this year to read more non-fiction. It's something that I need for my soul right now. I have to stop always escaping into fantasy because the real world ...

4.0 A book that needs to be read. Will it be read by those who need it the most?
In this relatively short collection of essays, author Dyson tackles various topics that have made the rounds in the news, social media and the like. The concepts of white privilege, Colin Kaepernick's choice to protest, white fragility, police brutality, and more. Much of this isn't new and if you'v...
