As 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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…This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Elegantly written…powerful in several areas: moving personal recollections, profound cultural analysis, and guidance for moral redemption. A work to relish.” Toni Morrison, New York Times bestselling author
“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race…a deeply serious, urgent book.” New York Times Book Review
"Wow! Eloquently delivered, sermon-style, without anger or bitterness, this is one of the most heartfelt calls to action I’ve ever heard. Audible Range
“Michael Eric Dyson’s elegant discussion of the role of race and privilege in white culture proves to be simultaneously provocative and sincere…His ability to draw out the incongruities of contemporary white American culture and its assault on non-white lives, culture, and identities will leave listeners reconsidering their complicity in the challenges currently faced by African–Americans and others.
