As mass unrest engulfs the U.S., we speak with attorney and political commentator Bakari Sellers, whose new memoir, “My Vanishing Country,” includes the story of what happened to his father during the Orangeburg massacre of 1968, when police opened fire on a crowd of students at South Carolina State University who were protesting segregation. Sellers recounts the United States’ long history of systemic racism, and the racial disparities that have endured and made COVID-19 disproportionately deadly for Black Americans. “White folk in this country have to be willing to read, listen and understand about this experience of being Black in this country,” Sellers says. “That is the way we begin to have difficult but necessary decisions about how we heal and come together.”
