Publisher's Summary

Renowned, best-selling author Michael Eric Dyson makes his YA debut, with critically acclaimed author Marc Favreau, to deliver an urgent, enlightening account of racial inequality in America.

The true story of racial inequality—and resistance to it—is the prologue to our present. You can see it in where we live, where we go to school, where we work, in our laws, and in our leadership. Unequal presents a gripping account of the struggles that shaped America and the insidiousness of racism, and demonstrates how inequality persists. As listeners meet some of the many African American people who dared to fight for a more equal future, they will also discover a framework for addressing racial injustice in their own lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Accessible, riveting…. Grounded in evidence and optimistic: Uplifts the social power of studying Black American freedom fighters." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

"Michael Eric Dyson is one the greatest intellectuals and thought provokers of our time. In this book, he and Marc Favreau realize we are the fruit of generations of giants who labored for and demanded a more equal America. Read Unequal to learn their stories—and our own." (Common, Grammy Award-winning artist, author, actor, and activist)

"With clarity and insight, Unequal illuminates how racial inequality is built into every aspect of American society. In gripping prose, Michael Eric Dyson and Marc Favreau draw clear lines between past and present struggles for racial equality to reveal what is required of us if we truly want to live in a society without racism." (Robin DiAngelo, number one best-selling author of White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism)

Dyson Delivers Powerful History Lesson

We can never get enough of the details of our history as Americans. Michael Eric Dyson tells our story in small chapters so we can use each segment as reference material. The deliberate acts of torture and violence leveled on us as a people whether overt or discrete is devastating to our humanity. We must face this truth because it empowers us to stand up today and realize we are still on the battlefield. Read and cherish this book.

Another reason to vote!

Always compelling and thoughtful , I appreciate his insight to the issues we face as Black Americans. There has never been more of a need to get out and vote than now, especially in Texas where I live and Florida, the two biggest states spewing this racist disinformation. Keep giving us this vital info Dr.
