Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racism writers and activists in the U.S., having given lectures from 1995 to the present in 48 different states, and on over 500 college campuses. He has trained a multitude of teachers, corporate employees, non-profit organizations and law enforcement officers in methods for dismantling racism in their institutions.
As of 2008, Wise has written three books.
His scholarly book, Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White (Routledge: 2005) has received praise from academics and is also taught in dozens of educational institutions.
His memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race From a Privileged Son (Soft Skull Press) is taught at hundreds of colleges and high schools across the nation.
His most recent book is 2008's Speaking Treason Fluently: Anti-Racist Reflections From an Angry White Male (Soft Skull Press).
In February 2009, City Lights Publishers will release Between Barack and a Hard Place, which explores how Barack Obama's emergence as a political force is taking the race debate to new levels. 
Additionally, Wise's anti-racism essays are also widely published. An updated archive of the essays (from 1994 - 2008) can be found on his website.
