European Dissent-New Orleans says

Please join the People's Institute for Survival & Beyond ( and European Dissent-New Orleans for an evening in celebration of the bold, new book by David Billings.

Deep Denial: The Persistence of White Supremacy in American History and Life

“No one speaks to racism and its cure better than David Billings, a white Southerner who has seen it all. His is a voicethat needs to be heard. It is a voice with perfect pitch.”
— Charlayne Hunter-Gault
Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist and civil rights pioneer

Deep Denial truly fills a void! Part popular history, part personal memoir, Deep Denial documents the 400-year racialization of the United States and how people of European descent came to be called "white."
A master storyteller and long-time New Orleans activist, David Billings starts each chapter with a disarming and intimate vignette from his personal life, beginning with his white, working-class boyhood in Mississippi and Arkansas.
This book is a must read for anyone seeking to increase their racial consciousness, interested in racial equity and social justice or having more successful outcomes in their life and work.

Ron Chisom of The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond will join David to speak at this event.

Co-sponsored by The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond & European Dissent.
