Review: Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America


Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson

Written as a sermon, this is a fairly short and clearly articulated, engaging read.

The book was published in 2017, and many reviews by White readers include words like "revelation" that, from the perspective of late 2020 look dated and out of touch. Our year this year has been filled with incidents like those that inspired this sermon; incidents leading to protest and discussion on race injustice in America.

My hope is that out of our collective experience this year we are all able to come together to bring about a brighter and more hopeful future for all of our fellow Americans, Black and White. Toward the end of the book, Dyson includes some suggestions for actions that we as individuals can take to help bring that future about.

I rate Tears We Cannot Stop Four Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐.
