Anti-racist activist and author Tim Wise is back with another no-holds-barred take on race and America's changing demographics in Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority. Written in the form of letters addressed to white America, Wise unabashedly examines the anxieties faced by the country's dwindling majority as multiculturalism begins to define a new generation of Americans.

Sharp and witty, Wise's latest book criticizes many of today's continued racist institutions while provocatively proclaiming their quick demise as America's racial landscape continues to evolve.

Wise's Dear White America is now available in bookstores and online.
