Race is one of the most divisive issues in this country. And it’s the most hidden and least discussed … that is, among whites.

Debby Irving is joining us to share her brave, unflinching journey from white oblivion to white awareness openly chronicled in her book, Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race. It has just been released in audio format so you will want to check it out.

This is not only a riveting tale of the building awareness that led to Debby’s personal wake up call; the book provides a fascinating look at racial denial and our society’s secret acceptance of white privilege. If you care about equality and social justice, you won’t want to miss this thought-provoking discussion. Ms. Irving’s book provides the mirror to open and honest reflection and it’s up to each of us to bring racial consciousness into our minds and our hearts.
