Description
A collection of powerful pieces on race, culture, identity and belonging and what these all mean and should mean (but often fail to) in the volatile climate of our nation. Rodriguez has a distinctly inspiring passion and wisdom in his approach as he writes about current political and cultural unrest, about his own compelling background, and about his vision for America's future.
