Collins-Dexter, Brandi


ISBN 9781250824127, 1250824125
Trade Paperback | 320 pages

The paperback publication of Black Skinhead, political activist Brandi Collins-Dexter’s critically acclaimed essay collection sparking a “timely as well as pointed” (The New York Times) conversation about Black America and political identity.


In Black Skinhead, Brandi Collins-Dexter, former Senior Campaign Director for Color Of Change, explores the fragile alliance between Black voters and the Democratic party. Through sharp, timely essays that span the political, cultural, and personal, Collins-Dexter reveals decades of simmering disaffection in Black America, told as much through voter statistics as it is through music, film, sports, and the baffling mind of Kanye West.

While Black Skinhead is an outward look at Black votership and electoral politics, it is also a funny, deeply personal, and introspective look at Black culture and identity, ultimately revealing a Black America that has become deeply disillusioned with the failed promises of its country.
