What's Going on : With the same personal authority and exhilarating directness he brought to his bestselling memoir, Makes Me Wanna Holler, Washington Post columnist Nathan McCall delivers a series of front-line reports on the state of the races in today's America. In What's Going On, McCall adds up the hidden costs of the stereotype of black athletic prowess and introduces a fresh perspective to the debates on gangsta rap and sexual violence. He indicts the bigotry of white churches and the complacency of the black suburban middle class, celebrates the heroism of Muhammad Ali and defends the truth-telling of Alice Walker. Engaging, irreverent, and utterly fearless, here is a commentator to reckon with, addressing our most persistent divisions in a book that is guaranteed to provoke readers of every pigmentation and political allegiance.
