Who are Black skinheads? Brandi Collins-Dexter, a visiting fellow at the Harvard’s Kennedy School and media commentator, introduces readers to voters who gave up on the Democratic Party after Presidents Barack and Joe Biden failed to meet the needs of Black Americans. She reveals decades of simmering disaffection in Black America, told as much through voter statistics as it is through music, film, sports, and the baffling mind of Kanye West. While Black Skinhead is an outward look at Black votership and electoral politics, it is also a funny, deeply personal, and introspective look at the fragility of Black culture and identity, ultimately revealing a Black America that has become deeply disillusioned with the failed promises of its country.
