Overview

Bryant calls himself “a ChaRIOT,” which means that he not only takes sides with the oppressed, but that he has also chosen to become a prophetic voice and an activist in the continuing crusade to dismantle personal, systemic, and institutional racism in America. He challenges other freedom-loving persons to join him in this “ChaRIOT movement,” which could not be more important at a time when white supremacists are resurfacing with a boldness, passion, and sense of pride and purpose that are hard to fathom in this 21st century. Bryant’s sense of the “ChaRIOT Movement” is grounded in essentially the same vision that sparked Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle for the beloved community, and it encourages sustained resistance to the kind of fragmented and tribalized America advocated by hatemongers and right-wing extremists.

Lewis V. Baldwin, Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University

Description
In this powerful book, Dr. K. Edwin Bryant confronts difficult conversations to help non-blacks reinterpret public responses to oppression imposed on and experienced by the black community. Dr. Bryant offers a real-life characterization of how justice disrupts the organization of power along racial lines and the final analysis needed to pull Black people apart from reliance on the 'double consciousness. This is a lifeline and safe place for people who benefit from privilege to openly admit they share in and benefit from the privileges of being White – and the courage to help make America a better place by rejecting racism. Filled with purpose and urgency, this book serves as a call to action to deconstruct and dismantle the systemic and implicit biases that continue to oppress nonwhite people in the country, particularly Black Americans. It is a beacon of light unveiling a new community on the horizon. Dr. Bryant reminds us that an intense reframing and re(presenting) rage is the action that moves (America) toward progress – not just protest.
