Crystal M. Fleming, PhD, is a writer and sociologist who researches racism in the United States and abroad. She earned degrees from Wellesley College and Harvard University and is associate professor of sociology and Africana studies at Stony Brook University. Fleming writes about race, sexuality, and politics for publications including The Root, Black Agenda Report, Vox, and Everyday Feminism. She is the author of Resurrecting Slavery: Racial Legacies and White Supremacy in France. How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy, and the Racial Divide (Beacon Press) is a unique and irreverent take on everything that’s wrong with our “national conversation about race”–and what to do about it. Drawing upon critical race theory, as well as her own experiences as a queer black millennial college professor and researcher, Fleming unveils how systemic racism exposes us all to racial ignorance–and provides a road map for transforming our knowledge into concrete social change. How to Be Less Stupid About Race is a truth bomb and call to action for everyone who wants to challenge white supremacy and intersectional oppression.
