READING FROM HIS BOOK
DEEP DENIAL:
The Persistence of White Supremacy
in United States History and Life


DEEP DENIAL explores the normalizing of racial superiority in a society that permits white people to be individuals while people of color are collectively held as outsiders. Each chapter begins with an intimate and unsparingly personal account from the author's own life. He then lays out the historical facts, while preserving the master storyteller's connection with the reader.



"No one speaks to racism and its cure better than David Billings, a white Southerner who has seen it all.   His is a voice that needs to be heard.  It is a voice with a perfect pitch."  . . . .Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Emmy and Peabody Award winning journalist and civil rights pioneer.
