One of the most original, startling memoirs I have seen in the past ten years, Sabatini Sloan’s The Fluency of Lightcharts an entirely fresh course through the tangled territory of race and class in modern-day America. Each page offers fresh insight, unexpected information, crystal-clear thinking on the current cultural moment—a nation about to turn more brown than white, more mixed than ‘pure.’
