Thanks to my cousin James–maintainer extraordinaire of the Inheriting The Trade website–a new feature has been added: Comments I’ve received (via e-mail or in the form of reviews on Amazon) about the book, the Book-TV broadcast, or an appearance I’ve made.
The vast majority of comments I’ve received have been positive and supportive but you’ll see that I’ve also included the two that were less-than-complementary. The reactions we’ve received to both the book and the film have run the gamut. I’m gratified that we’re impacting people’s thinking–however they feel about these issues–because that’s the whole point: engaging in conversation rather than keeping issues of race buried and festering.
I’ll add more to this sampling as I receive them over the next few months.
