Recent Novels Address Race and Sexism

Arthur Dobrin, Professor Emeritus of Management and Entrepreneurship, recently published two novels that deal with issues of race and sexism in America. Where We Started, published in May 2020, is a historical look at the United States from 1740-1864. Professor of Education Alan Singer offered this praise: “It brings the past and its inhabitants alive and makes possible a very different understanding of the history of the United States, enslavement, and the struggle for freedom.”

The 1992 tribal killings in Kenya, witch hunts in Kisii, the Tomkins Square Park riot and other real events have a part to play in Professor Dobrin’s 2018 novel This Red Land , which follows the stories of three main characters in Kenya and the United States in the 1980s and 1990s.

Both books are published by Nsemia, a Kenyan-Canadian publisher.
