Grass Roots Resistance
Reviewed in the United States on December 28, 2019
A fascinating, important book. Robin Kelley introduces us to various examples of unorganized resistance to American white domination. His knowledge of the vast history of the struggles of African Americans enables him to place the vivid accounts he offers here in historical context, and gives us a wider grasp of their significance. Especially impressive is his discussion of gangster rap in the 90s - honest, avoiding facile conclusions, unflinching, it is all the more valuable in having been written during that period. Race Rebels is a must read for serious students of American history.
