Description

Informed and driven by his experience as an upper-middle-class African American who lives and works in a predominantly white environment, provocative author Lawrence Otis Graham offers a unique perspective on the subject of race. In Member of the Club, a searing book of essays ranging from examining life as a black Princetonian and corporate lawyer to exploring life as a black busboy at an all-white country club, Graham continues his candid search for racial and ethnic understanding, challenging racial prejudice among white Americans while also demanding greater accountability and self-determination from his peers in black America. In Member of the Club, Graham grapples with the reality of a racially polarized world and looks to our future in an uncompromising work that will challenge the mind-set of every reader.
