Kaolin (formerly Patricia A. Graham - Williams) will join me for a provocative conversation and her book “TALKING ABOUT RACE: A Workbook About White People Fostering Racial Equality in Their Lives”. Here is what two of America’s foremost authorities on the subject of inequity had to say:

Howard Zinn - A People's History of the United States

Talking About Race is wonderfully engaging, truly conversational, and because it is so personal it takes the subject out of the realm of academic discussion and confronts readers with the reality of their own thoughts, their own experiences. I think it would be a very useful book for teachers and students.

Tim Wise, author White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son

Kaolin's narrative is a compelling mix of first-rate analysis, personal stories, and practical, illuminating exercises that help readers utilize this book as a living, evolving document. By asking readers to stop and reflect as they move through the text, Kaolin gives us all a chance to breathe, take in the deep and important material herein, and then push forward in the struggle against racism, in ourselves and society.
