Racism, violence, hatred, shootings. Headlines are filled with these injustices and most believe there is little hope to enact lasting change. For many this is the narrative of American society. This is the day-to-day life for millions of individuals. We are left asking the question what do we do? More than that: What are we called to do? This question leaves many of us without an answer, or with still more questions. It is a question that cannot live solely in the theoretical realm but must be lived out through practical action. Thus, Patrick Reyes’s book Nobody Cries When We Die serves as a step toward answering that question with the urgency it deserves.
