2 days ago
In front of a packed house at Greenlight Bookstore, author Jeff Chang discussed his book We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation, with panelists Nikole Hannah-Jones, New York Times Magazine investigative journalist, and Rebecca Carroll, a producer of special projects on race at WNYC. In their discussion on stage, and in an impassioned audience Q&A, Chang, Hannah-Jones, and Carroll dig deep into story telling and code switching, the complexities of educational “diversity”, the manifestations and effects of gentrification, and the way that studying the long history of American racism can actually keep you sane.
