Multi-America is an unprecedented, unpredictable and absolutely refreshing anthology. Ishmael Reed has brought together a rainbow collection of ethnic Americans to challenge the communications oligopolies that have dominated the discussion of race in this country. It provides perspectives from points of view that have been omitted from the discussion of race in the United States: African American, Native American, Asian American and Euro-ethnic, Italian American, Irish American, etc. These marginalized voices speak out on a broad spectrum of topics: an Irish American discusses what has been lost in assimilation; an Afrocentrist responds to the one-sided depiction of Afrocentrism; Latinos discuss the violent racial conflicts between blacks and Latinos. They represent, for the first time, the authentic voice of the new Rainbow America.
