This book should be on any and every reading list, especially in this era of civil and social unrest and is a perfect pairing with books like How To be An Antiracist by Kendi or Stony the Road by Henry Louis Gates Jr. What I love about Wilkerson's book is her passion, anger, fears and her sense of justice do not cloud her journalistic abilities but are enhanced by her skills at being a storyteller and a researcher. Those passions illuminate and reverberate with the reader through her personal accounts as well as her histories of the whole concepts and misconceptions of "race". I personally think this book should be required reading for Social Services and the Police Dept. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
