Jackson, 1964: And Other Dispatches from Fifty Years of Reporting on Race in America Read & Download ç 4 Calvin Trillin Î 4 review From bestselling author and beloved New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin a deeply resonant career spanning collection of articles on race and racism from the 1960s to the present   In the early sixties Calvin Trillin got his start as a journalist covering the Civil Rights Movement in the South first for Time and later for The New Yorker Over the next five decades of reporting he often returned to scenes of racial tension Now for the first time the best of Trillin’s pieces on race in America have been collected in one volume   In the title essay of Jackson 1964 we experience Trillin’s riveting coverage of the pathbreaking voter registration drive known as the Mississippi Summer Project coverage that includes an unforgettable airplane conversation between Martin Luther King Jr and a young white man sitting across the aisle “I’d like to be loved by. I had been unfamiliar with Calvin Trillin s work before picking up this book of pieces on racial issues in America but I m really thankful I did because I will be reading of his workThe pieces and articles are a compilation of Trillin s work on race that he has accumulated over his long journalism career from the Civil Rights Movement to the present I was initially skeptical about picking up this book because Trillin is white and oftentimes books about race written by white authors are shrouded in problems and privilege I m pleasantly surprised that this was not the case as far as my own white privileged eyes can tell Trillin s journalism is incredibly thorough reporting It s obvious from his writing that he did lots of in depth research to develop his pieces The uality of his reporting is solid factually and analytically Moreover despite taking an objective stance on the issues presented in these pieces his writing exudes empathy both for the victims of racism and the perpetrators yet he never took the stance that the perpetrators presented here had a right to commit the racist actions they did It s a rare honest look at the times and probably the closest you can get to being a fly on the wall for many of the events and happenings that have defined our current racial dynamics in this country I also appreciate that he kept the language used at the time he wrote the pieces now considered offensive as it gives an honest look at what it was like to live in an atmosphereThe pieces also span a large array of events and issues that have been lost in the greater picture of things but are important nonetheless I found the piece on Mormonism Brigham Young University and racism to be particularly eye opening since I had never heard of the protests there I also enjoyed the pieces on housing development in Newark tidbits about Martin Luther King Jr and a look at some of the institutions like the Dallas city government that have been willing participants in systemic racism for a long time The piece that I will keep with me for what will no doubt be a very long time is an article written about a young black man who was pulled over by a cop in Seattle in 1975 under suspicion of participating in a robbery the man had not committed yet he was shot and killed The language used by Trillin to describe white fear of black men and our unconscious bias is cutting and true His willingness to uncover the bias behind police shootings like this by exposing the excuses and rumors about suspicions of criminal activity as a coverup for accounting for the police officer s racial bias hits very close to home I felt that the names and places could be replaced in this piece and reprinted the next time god forbid another incident of police brutality occurs against a black man or woman I highly recommend this collection of journalism to anyone interested in history social justice activism and racial issues that are currently embedded in our culture Die Venusmorde (Simon Stark Reihe 10) the 1960s The Hanging Woods to Be Seated the present   In The Lost Bank the early sixties Calvin Trillin got his start as a journalist covering Schlafen lernen Sanfte Wege für Ihr Kind GU Ratgeber Kinder the Civil Rights Movement in Developing Transferable Skills the South first for Time and later for The New Yorker Over Friends Forever?

I am continually learning how little I learned in school about the terrorism and intimidation that occurred in retaliation for any modicum of progress in the civil rights movement There is to read but this book is horrifying and at least for me feels essential
