FEATURING HOWARD BRYANT – President Donald Trump has for much of his White House tenure attempted to woo African Americans. He has touted massive gains in employment and other fields for this traditionally Democratic Party leaning demographic. He has showcased token individuals to boast of black support. But, like America in general, Trump’s promise to African Americans has been hollow.
Now in a new book of essays, outspoken writer and commentator Howard Bryant explores all the ways in which he sees “an uneven playing field.”
Howard Bryant is a senior writer for ESPN the Magazine and is a correspondent for NPR’s Weekend Edition. He has won several awards for his commentary writing. His books include The Heritage, Juicing the Game, and The Last Hero.
