Interview with Peter O'Dowd on NPR's Here & Now....
“Sterling and Joffe-Block diligently chronicle the work of immigration rights activists and undocumented workers while also focusing closely on Arpaio, who, like Trump, professed to despise the press while craving its attention… a work of exemplary reporting” — Kirkus Reviews
“This is combustible nonfiction…To read this book is to understand America in the twenty-first century.”—Walter V. Robinson, Pulitzer Prize winner, leader of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team that inspired the Academy Award–winning film Spotlight
“Driving While Brown is an engaging chronicle of hate disguised as populism, from its short shelf life to how it inspired courageous activists to stand up, push back, and launch a movement that’s remaking our political landscape.”—Ricardo Sandoval-Palos, PBS Public Editor and coauthor of The Fight in the Fields: Cesar Chavez and the Farmworkers Movement
“In Driving While Brown, Greene Sterling and Joffe-Block expertly fill in the blanks and connect the dots to build a compelling, comprehensive narrative of the immigration battles that have defined and redefined Arizona, offering a window into the ethnic and racial animus in the United States today and the transformative power of hope and purpose shared by younger generations. This is a book for our times.”—Fernanda Santos, a contributing columnist for The Washington Post and author of The Fire Line: The Story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots
