The classic work on American racism and the struggle for racial justice, now with a new foreword by Michelle Alexander In Faces at the Bottom of the Well, civil rights activist and legal scholar Derrick Bell uses allegory and historical example to argue that racism is an integral and permanent part of American society. African American struggles for equality are doomed to fail so long as the majority of whites do not see their own well-being threatened by the status quo. Bell calls on African Americans to face up to this unhappy truth and abandon a misplaced faith in inevitable progress. Only then will blacks, and those whites who join with them, be in a position to create viable strategies to alleviate the burdens of racism. "Freed of the stifling rigidity of relying unthinkingly on the slogan 'we shall overcome,'" he writes, "we are impelled both to live each day more fully and to examine critically the actual effectiveness of traditional civil rights remedies." With a new foreword by Michelle Alexander, Faces at the Bottom of the Well is urgent and essential reading on the problem of racism in America.… (mere)

Renowned civil rights lawyer and activist, Derek Bell, turned to writing later in his career as a way to forward the discussions around race and critical race theory in the United States. Faces at the Bottom of the Well is a collection of his short stories originally published in 1992 (reprinted in 2018), and it contains his most famous story, The Space Traders. Bell is no literary genius--these stories are narratively clunky and the dialogue often painfully obtuse, but the theory and lessons he is trying to explain through them rises above. Often cited by today’s social justice activists as a must-read, Faces at the Bottom of the Well certainly meets expectations. ( )

Bell provides a fictional platform to talk about real -life racial issues. This book helps facilitate dialogue about race in a seemless yet intelligent way. ( )
