Over the past half-century, America has seen profound demographic and cultural change, but racial progress still seems distant. After the faith of the civil rights movement, the fervor of multiculturalism, and even the brief euphoria of a "post-racial" moment, we remain a nation divided. How do Americans understand race now? Do we see each other any more clearly than before? In this provocative, illustrated NAACP Image Award Finalist, Jeff Chang looks anew at the tumultuous half-century from the peak of the civil rights era to the colorization and strife of the Obama years, uncovering a hidden history of American arts, cultural, and social movements that have changed the ways we see each other.
