Praise for Beat of a Different Drum

“In a nation that still struggles with its racial morass with all the deftness of a drunk in a glass house, this book is a fresh, hot cup of coffee.” – James McBride, author of The Color of Water and Miracle at St. Anna

“Beat of a Different Drum is a serious feat of journalism, yet it exhibits an honesty of narration that journalism usually lacks. It tackles some heady issues, from the purpose of our existence to the meaning of race in a less-stereotyped world. Dax-Devlon Ross is a strong new voice, and one we will be hearing often.” – Po Bronson, author of What Should I Do With My Life? and Why Do I Love These People?
