Faces at the Bottom of the Well by Derrick Bell

Book Description

The noted civil rights activist uses allegory and historical example to present a radical vision of the persistence of racism in America. These essays shed light on some of the most perplexing and vexing issues of our day: affirmative action, the disparity between civil rights law and reality, the "racist outbursts" of some black leaders, the temptation toward violent retaliation, and much more.
