As the success of Between Barack and a Hard Place continues to demonstrate, Tim Wise is an established voice in the U.S. on race who is embraced by mainstream, black, and community media. Colorblind will be compelling to book buyers because it picks up and carries forward the arguments of his previous works and strikes at a core Obama-era questions: Has the U.S. become a post-racial society? Is personal and policy-oriented colorblindness the way to liberate ourselves of last vestiges of racism? The combination of the enormous public response to Wise, the timeliness of the book’s focus, and the author’s speaking schedule together create enormous sales potential in political, current events, African American, sociological, ethnic, and academic markets. The author plans to drive sales and media through an energetic tour schedule involving dozens talks over the course of a year. Building on an already impressive record of interviews for A-list media, we will shoot for a host of national media, including Oprah, Tavis Smiley, Bill Moyers, Charlie Rose, Fresh Air, Democracy Now, All Things Considered, CSPAN, Colbert. Like Between Barack and a Hard Place, Colorblind has break out potential.
