In thisNew York Timesbestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America
Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy--from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans--has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair--and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?
InSo You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
"Oluo gives us--both white people and people of color--that language to engage in clear, constructive, and confident dialogue with each other about how to deal with racial prejudices and biases."--National Book Review
"Generous and empathetic, yet usefully blunt . . . it''s for anyone who wants to be smarter and more empathetic about matters of race and engage in more productive anti-racist action."--Salon(Required Reading)
Ijeoma Oluois a writer and speaker whose work on race has been featured in theNew York Times,Washington Post,Elle,The Guardian,and more. She has twice been named toThe Root 100and received the 2018 Feminist Humanist Award from the American Humanist Society. She lives in Seattle.
