Read Race Matters by Cornel West with Rakuten Kobo
Race Matters contains West's most powerful essays on issues relevant to black Americans: despair, black conservatism, black-Jewish relations, myths about black sexuality, the crisis in leadership in the black community, and the legacy of Malcolm X. For the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Race Matters, Cornel West reminds us why race still matters and considers the way these issues are crucial to building a genuine multiracial democracy.
