“From an award-winning historian, a groundbreaking portrait of pervasive exploitation and radical resistance in America, told through the turbulent history of St. Louis. From Lewis and Clark’s 1804 expedition to the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, American history has been made in St. Louis. And as Walter Johnson shows in this searing book, the city exemplifies how imperialism, racism, and capitalism have persistently entwined to corrupt the nation’s past. “– Provided by publisher.
Crying in H Mart: amemoir. Zauner, M.
“In this exquisite story of family, food, grief, and endurance, Michelle Zauner proves herself far more than a dazzling singer, songwriter, and guitarist. With humor and heart, she tells of growing up the only Asian-American kid at her school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother’s particular, high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of treasured months spent in her grandmother’s tiny apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food. “– Provided by publisher
“This book is a comprehensive history of the abuse f medical experimentation on African Americans, who have for centuries served as unwilling and unwitting subjects. The product of years of prodigious research into medical journals and experimental reports long undisturbed, this book reveals the hidden underbelly of scientific research and makes possible for the first time, an understanding of the roots of the African American health deficit.” – Provided by publisher.
How to be an antiracist. Kendi,IX .
“The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it — and then dismantle it.” Ibram X. Kendi’s concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America — but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In HowtoBeanAntiracist, Kendi asks us to think about what anantiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.” — Provided by publisher.
Minor feelings: an Asian American reckoning. Hong, CP.
“As the daughter of Korean immigrants, Cathy Park Hong grew up steeped in shame, suspicion, and melancholy. She would later understand that these “minor feelings” occur when American optimism contradicts your own reality–when you believe the lies you’re told about your own racial identity. With sly humor and a poet’s searching mind, Hong uses her own story as a portal into a deeper examination of racial consciousness in America today.”– Provided by publisher.
