Excerpted from the NATIONAL BOOK REVIEW:
This is the story of Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who identifies as
black, as told by Ijeoma Oluo. It gives both white people and people
of color a language to engage in clear, constructive, and confident
dialogue with each other — about how to deal with racial prejudices
and biases. This book is for everyone, white or black, or any color in
between. If you are white, it will make you see nuances of racism that
you were probably not aware of, including within yourself, your loved
ones, and co-workers. If you are a person of color, it will give you
ways to respond calmly, rationally, and intelligently, even when
dealing with the well-meaning, “I’m not a racist white friend or
co-worker” … Timely and much-needed, this book is more than a primer
on racism. It is a comprehensive conversation guide…required reading
so that some of those problematic, volatile conversations around race
(and gender, sexuality, and more) can get somewhat less painful.
The book (SO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RACE) can be purchased at
bookstores or online. Participants are asked to have read the
Introduction and Chapters 1-3 before coming to the first session.
