Possessed of “intellectual heft, critical thinking depth and finesse with words and messages” (Essence), Michael Eric Dyson is the author of 19 books, a frequent New York Times opinion writer, an MSNBC political analyst, and University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown. His many honors include an American Book Award and two NAACP Image Awards, and Ebony named him one of the 100 Most Influential African Americans. Tears We Cannot Stop is a no-holds-barred call for white America to face difficult truths about how it has ignored or dismissed African American grievances.
