Not currently available
Special Order, Subject to Availability
The reality of racial inequality and injustice is glaring. Some feel it's a historical issue, while others feel it has been fueled by the current political, economic and social climate. Regardless, we need a starting point that can take us inside the conversations and debates surrounding race to better understand the past, present, and future of race and racism, and how we can contribute to the narrative in a more positive, equal way. This book examines race from all angles and leaves us with a positive outlook on why the American conversation needs to get serious about race.
