Summary, etc.:
"A guide to having productive conversations about race"-- Provided by publisher.
A self-described "light-skinned Black Jew" Headlee has been forced to speak about race since childhood. In her career as a journalist for public media, she has made it a priority to talk about race proactively. She's discovered, however, that those exchanges have rarely been productive. While many people say they want to talk about race, the reality is they want to talk about race with people who agree with them. Headlee provides practical advice and insight for talking about race that will facilitate better conversations that can actually bring us closer together. It is an essential and timely book for all of us. -- adapted from jacket
