Like Rebecca Solnit’s Hope in the Dark and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’sWe Should All Be Feminists, The Marginalized Majority delivers a plan to not just survive but also push back in Trump’s America, from progressive journalist Onnesha Roychoudhuri.
From the Civil Rights Movement to the Women’s March, Saturday Night Live to the mainstream media, Roychoudhuri holds the myths about our disenfranchisement up to the light, illuminating narratives from history that reveal we have far more power than we’re often led to believe. With both clear-eyed hope and electrifying power, she examines our ideas about what’s possible, and what’s necessary—opening up space for action, new realities, and, ultimately, survival. Now, Roychoudhuri urges us, is the time to fight like the majority we already are.
