Citizen is a completely necessary and remarkable read. It documents racial aggressions from the smallest remarks that propogate systemic racism to the constant racism Serena Williams faces, to the killing of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown. She does this with elegance but also with rage and resignation. A must-read in today's world.
