Ben Jelloun’s Racism Explained to My Daughter

I am exceedingly frustrated at not having enough time to sit down and read this book. Tahar Ben Jalloun, an author who emigrated from Morocco to France in 1961, writes this tiny book about a big topic and structures it with questions from his daughter (“What’s a racist? Is any race better than another?”) that he attempts to answer. The rest of the tiny volume contains response essays by Patricia Williams, David Mura, Lisa D. Delpit, and William Ayers.
