White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America
I just keep coming back to this book! I have read it twice! This is the history of white America that has been deliberately left out. It's embarrassing, crass, and super creepy. White Trash explores the history of "waste people," presidential perspectives, and how race has a part in every single piece of American history, no matter how hard some try to erase it. Nancy Isenberg has created a dialog that can change everything--all you have to do is read it. Happy learning! Recommended by Jenna.
"This estimable book rides into the summer doldrums like rural electrification. . . . It deals in the truths that matter."--Dwight Garner, The New York Times
