Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson
Michael Erin Dyson artfully weaves personal, prophetic, and professorial elements into his 2017 book ‘Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America.’ The books chapters follow the framework of a church service, which challenges the reader to confront racism both viscerally and theologically. Dyson doesn't just preach, however, he sends his readers out with a benediction full of action steps for White America — educate, participate, speak up, and more. While the book addresses White America, all readers will gain a deeper understanding of race in America by reading this book. A must read for individuals, book groups and church studies alike.
