Deep Denial - Author Talk with David Billings

Deep Denial - Author Talk with David Billings

Deep Denial - part popular history, part personal memoir - documents the 400-year racialization of the United States and how people of European descent came to be called “white.” Author David Billings focuses primarily on the deeply embedded notion of white supremacy, and tells us why, despite the Civil Rights movement and an African-
American president, we remain, in the author’s words, “a nation hard-wired by race.” A master storyteller, Billings starts each chapter with a disarming and intimate vignette from his personal life, beginning with his white, working-class boyhood in Mississippi and Arkansas. He then situates these telling moments in a broader historical context that will be new and disturbing to many readers.
