Book Reviews and Feature Coverage for Point of Reckoning

“[A] doggedly researched narrative . . . [providing] a candid view of institutional resistance to social justice and its dismantling by determined activism.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[In Point of Reckoning,] Segal chronicles the reaction of the pioneering Duke pediatrician and professor Brenda Armstrong who, as a leader of the school’s Afro-American Society, organized the Black student takeover of the Allen Building in 1969 to protest the racial climate on campus. Before she died in 2018, Armstrong served as the associate dean for admissions at the Duke School of Medicine for more than 20 years, in addition to working as a senior associate dean for student diversity, recruitment, and retention. ‘Everybody has a gift, and nobody’s gift is better than anyone else’s,’ Armstrong said of the racist incidents that polluted the campus before her death. “But that culture of sharing and appreciating each other’s gifts has not been achieved.”Thomasi McDonald, INDY Week
