Collective Amnesia: American Apartheid, by Dr. Eugene DeFriest Betit, covers the history of racism in the United States since 1619. It shows the protracted war fought to eliminate the scourge of chattel slavery from America. In addition, it unveils how the racism prevalent in the society prevailed in the U.S. Army, and how, through bravery and discipline, Black Americans made significant contributions to the liberation of their race. It describes the difficulties they have experienced while trying to survive in the white society.

In conclusion, I rate Collective Amnesia: American Apartheid 4 out of 4 stars. It was exceptionally well edited; I didn’t find any grammar or typographical errors. I recommend it to anyone who is courageous enough to face facts and learn more about the history of racism and slavery in the United States.
