David Billings’ Deep Denial – North Branch

Join us for this interesting author talk. Mississippi native David Billings’ recent book, Deep Denial: The Persistence of White Supremacy in United States History and Life, has won the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Award in the Current Events/Social Change category. Billings, an historian and organizer with The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, has worked for half a century in the struggle for racial justice. Deep Denial— part popular history, part personal memoir — documents the 400-year racialization of the U.S. and explains why “we remain a nation hard-wired by race.”
