The Treehouse Talks

Racial injustice drives the plot of The Trees by Percival Everett. Reminiscent of an activist, Everett uses his novel to both criticize the institution of the police force and the ever-present racism in America. He speaks out against these institutions, spreading awareness on issues that should be left in history textbooks as he calls for change.
