Every Day in the USA

The Story of Every Day in the USA

“If you identify as a person of color, Every Day in the USA: 30 Black Moments might make you angry, want to shake your head, or even laugh out loud. If you’re white, it might make you wince or leave you bewildered. But then, what?…” We pick up the thread Brother Langston Hughes began in Black Misery, and sew it into the fabric of our lives as African Americans in the 21st Century.
