Daniel Brook will give a lecture at the Louisiana Humanities Center on his new book from W. W. Norton, “The Accident of Color: A Story of Race in Reconstruction.”
From the publisher’s website: “The Accident of Color revisits a crucial inflection point in American history. By returning to the birth of our nation’s singularly narrow racial system, which was forged in the crucible of opposition to civil rights, Brook illuminates the origins of the racial lies we live by.”
