To read Tommy Orange is to contend with histories that, as he puts it, "run counter to the way the American narrative has been told." In There There he opts for brutal honesty over comforting fictions and empathy over complacency. In so doing, he offers Native Americans and all Americans a means of healing the wounds of the past and present.

The Ethics of Now is a series of conversations between Duke historian Adriane Lentz Smith and a range of artists, advocates, and authors that explore the ethical challenges facing the Durham and Duke communities.
