Hailed in the New York Times as a "smart and capacious history", Franchise takes the reader from the first McDonald’s drive-in in San Bernardino in the 1940s to civil rights protests at franchises in the American South in the 1960s and the McDonald’s on Florissant Avenue in Ferguson in the summer 2014. Chatelain charts how the fight for racial justice is intertwined with the fate of black businesses.
Franchise is an essential story of race and capitalism in America.
