Eugene Robinson talked about his book Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America. In his book he argues that, through decades of desegregation, affirmative action, and immigration, the concept of Black America as a single entity with unified interests and needs has shattered into four distinct groups. He was interviewed at the 33rd Annual National Press Club Book Fair and Authors' Night, a fundraiser for the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library and The SEED Foundation held Tuesday, November 9, 2010 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
