The true story of racial inequality is the prologue to our present. You see it in where we live, where we go to school, where we work, in our laws, and in our leadership. Unequal presents an account of the struggles that shaped America and the insidiousness of racism, demonstrating how inequality persists today. This essential book presents a narrative-based investigation of racism in America and aims to tell the individual stories of individuals and how they dared challenge it. It moves from one vivid, telling episode to another, each told through the experience of an historically significant character. Unequal offers young people a compelling framework for addressing racial injustice in their own lives.
