Review: As part of my Directing class in school, I've had to some plays in preparation for the scene work that's to come later in the semester. One of those plays was Lorraine Hansberry's classic A Raisin in the Sun.
First, I want to talk about the positives. A Raisin in the Sun truly is a moving play. It's honestly one of the best examples of how good American theatre can be. It's expertly paced, each act ending with a crescendo that begs the audience to come back after the intermission. The cha... Read more
Review: Not for me. Creeps me out reading about all the guns, animal and bird killing and the plateau African Americans reach socially in the south. I did appreciate the author's humor and can see how many liked the book. Read more
Review: Charles Murray takes the reader through the long term changes in American society. I have been noticing many of these changes for years. The book is full of interesting, occasionally surprising and always thought provoking information. Read more
Review: The book is good but you really need to remember some words that he talks about cause then you have to keep going back to reread what that word meant. They were latin words.

Sometimes just a little too mu... Read more

Review: The Color of Law... is the lack of Will
I purchased the audible version of the book which helped me to listen in awe; I don’t know if I could have kept turning pages as quickly with a hardcopy version of the book. Chapter after Chapter Rothstein validates his theory of public policy executed by the federal and local governments designed to maintain the color barrier through segregated housing. It left me numb. As a student of urban housing, I studied many of the ghettos cited in the bo... Read more
Review: i am only giving this 4 stars.
Not because of the research. It is spot on. Its due to the blanket assumption that this rage is directed to all blacks in America.
Middle and Upper middle class black built an insular society parallel to middle and upper middle class whites after slavery. When Jim Crow laws became too invasive, the fight for desegration began. Middle class women didn't ride the buses in Montgomery, but it had to be one because a pregnant girl or a dark skinned poor one was a ... Read more
