New Book Chronicles Shocking Encounters with Discrimination in Modern America

News Image

Discrimination is still very much alive in the United States. Despite the victory of the civil rights movement, racism and prejudice still linger on in the nation, taking up more insidious and subtle forms to avoid denouncement. Author Christine J. Dial-Benton Ph.D. brings this shameful truth to the light in her new book, Experiences With Discrimination, to inform readers of the issues faced by racial minorities and women in America today.

Dr. Dial-Benton depicts the bitter impact of racism and intolerance in the daily lives of many Americans. Their shocking encounters with prejudice and bigotry cover every segment of American society, from within the halls of the education system and behind the walls of military bases, through the eyes of children being discriminated at school and adults facing prejudice in the workplace. Racial minorities are also joined by women, who face sexism and chauvinism throughout their lives, and other vulnerable members of the population.

Despite society’s progresses, tensions still exist between ethnic groups throughout the country, and will continue as long as the mistreatment of minorities goes on. To deny the existence of ongoing discrimination, or attempt to sweep it under the rug, will only exacerbate these tensions and erode the achievements of the civil rights movement in bringing equality and justice between the races. Dr. Dial-Benton addresses these issues with Experiences With Discrimination, by showing her readers the ugly truth as seen from the eyes of the minority, for hatred can only be stopped through understanding and knowledge. This book will be featured at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference Book Exhibit in Seattle, Wash. on January 25 - 28, 2013.
