W. Ralph Eubanks is a writer, educator and scholar with an extensive history covering racism in America — both his experiences growing up African-American, as well as broader issues such as the institutionalized economic racism he’s researching for his next book.
In addition to all that expertise, he’s also fantastic dinner company, because he’s very friendly and a great conversationalist. Those skills were on show when we met in dinner in mid-December for the 96th dinner with a stranger.
During our meal at Mule Bone in Washington, DC, Ralph discussed his family’s trials and tribulations having to deal with racism in America. He also walked me through his life, starting with his literature studies at school to his more recent publishing and teaching work.
