In the new non-fiction book SKIN, A Matter of Race in America, author A. P. Brooks takes the reader on a compelling journey through time, revealing fact based events in history that shaped the concept of race in America. A. P. Brooks falls in line with such notable southern writers as the famed Harper Lee, author of To Kill A Mockingbird and more recently, Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help whose books poignantly address the matter of race in America. The book SKIN however reaches deeper into the notion of race based on skin color, dissecting and then rebuilding ideals that have helped form our opinions about race. In conclusion, SKIN elicits the reader to have a new conversation about the matter of race in America.
