Living Racism: Through the Barrel of the Book edited by Theresa Rajack-Talley and Derrick R. Brooms responds to the challenge of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to find ‘the prescription for the cure’ to anti-black racism ‘with the accurate diagnosis of the disease.’ This book concludes that racism, despite its complexity, must be challenged by honest, heartfelt actions and words. This will require social engagement in many different arenas to eradicate and to eliminate anti-black racism. Doing nothing is not an option! Living Racism: Through the Barrel of the Book is an appropriate memorial to the work of the late Clarence R. Talley who developed the idea for the book, but was unable to see its publication.

Collaboratively, the editors have produced a prolific study on the concept, formation, and application of race in America. Additionally, the book is organized and prepared to examine the cognitive areas of education, gender, and public policy. Collectively, this volume is a major contribution to social science research in the discipline of Africana Studies.
