Cultural theorist Brittney Cooper examines racism through the lens of time, revealing us how historically it has been stolen from people of color, leading to lost minutes of joy and connection, lost years of healthy quality of life and the delay of development. An honest, thought-provoking take on history and race that may make you reassess your understanding of time, and your place in it.
