"In the city of Laquan McDonald and in the season when some white Americans are beginning to learn that black lives matter, it would be absurd to set myself up as apologist for the white gaze. I seek to describe its interiority and to suggest something of what it's like to live within its limitations."

Praise for Biking Englewood:

“In Biking Englewood, Benjamin Goluboff takes on the difficult and necessary task of interrogating the white gaze without affirming whiteness as an ethnic and racial identity. This essay should be read by anyone seriously interested in racial disparities American-style, particularly in the age of Trump."  -Shaun Rouser, Co-editor, The Blackstone Review.
