In conversation with Tracey Matisak, award-winning broadcaster and journalist

“A painful indictment of American inhumanity woven with threads of grace and love” (Guardian) Issac J. Bailey’s memoir My Brother Moochie offered a raw, first-hand account of the author’s older brother’s longtime incarceration for murder. The James K. Batten Professor of Public Policy at Davidson College, Bailey was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University and taught journalism at Coastal Carolina University. His award-winning work has been published in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Time, amongst many other periodicals, and he has appeared on NPR, CNN, and MSNBC. Addressing such topics as Confederate iconography, police brutality, and white discomfort, Why Didn’t We Riot? is an essay collection that explores what it means to be black in Trump’s America.
