Average but decent intellectual debate about race. Wished the story was more alive. Decent read.

Enlightening

It was such a pleasure to listen to this book as I think to some degree reading it would have taken away from the intense and truthful dialogue of these men. I wish passenger number 1’s true revelation of thought was captured, but there is definitely some eluding to his broader perspective throughout the conversations. I will be sharing and I appreciate the history lesson on so many fronts and for so many reasons as I look out at the racial unrest that continues to plague our American Society.

Astonishing message

I like this book because the Porter gave Factual events and research to articulate himself and a manner to make the senator think about his stereotypes. I would recommend this book to college universities to help people understand the undermines that America has negative perceptions about black people. This is a 5 star book.

Truth vs Lies

This is a book that everyone should read. This book reaches to the core of the matter separating truth from lies cuts so deep as to separate the bone from the marrow.

spoke a bit choppy

very Informative but something that should be read maybe by the most highly educated individuals in the English language to understand the vernacular that was being used. A lot of the things they spoke about I never heard of end of the high level use of terminology but otherwise very informative to see the argument unfold
