Listen to an interview with Julius Bailey on SiriusXM News & Issues
“This is Julius Bailey’s most important work to date. The book provides a critical, urgent, and courageous meditation on the current American racial landscape. Drawing from Western philosophy, prophetic criticism, and Black arts and culture, Bailey spotlights the political, economic, and existential challenges confronted by the American body politic. Equally important, he offers a pathway for creating a more humane, loving, safe, and just world.” ― Marc Lamont Hill, Distinguished Professor of African American Studies, Morehouse College, and CNN Political Commentator

Racial Realities and Post-Racial Dreams is a moral call, a harkening and quickening of the spirit, a demand for recognition for those whose voices are whispered. Julius Bailey straddles the fence of social-science research and philosophy, using empirical data and current affairs to direct his empathy-laced discourse. He turns his eye to President Obama and his critics, racism, income inequality, poverty, and xenophobia, guided by a prophetic thread that calls like-minded visionaries and progressives to action. The book is an honest look at the current state of our professed city on a hill and the destruction left on the darker sides of town.
