Summary "Trayvon Martin, Race, and 'American Justice': Writing Wrong is the first comprehensive text to analyze not only the killing of Trayvon Martin, but the implications of this event for the state of race in the United States. Bringing together contributions from a variety of disciplines and approaches, this text pushes readers to answer the question: 'In the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin, and the acquittal of his killer, how post-racial can we claim to be?' This collection of short and powerful chapters is at times angering and at times hopeful, but always thought provoking, critical, and poignant"--Provided by publisher
