This groundbreaking book invites readers to imagine a future in which-- rather than divide us -- our differences bring us together in the pursuit of justice and equality
In this deeply inspiring book, Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi recount their experiences talking to people from all walks of life about race and identity on a cross-country tour of America. Spurred by the realization that they had nearly completed high school without hearing any substantive discussion about racism in school, the two young women deferred college admission for a year to collect first-person accounts of how racism plays out in this country every day--and often in unexpected ways. In Tell Me Who You Are, Guo and Vulchi reveal the lines that separate us based on race or other perceived differences and explore how telling our stories--and listening deeply to the stories of others----are the first and most crucial steps we can take towards developing racial literacy and negating racial inequity in our culture. Featuring interviews with over 150 Americans Americans, accompanied by their photographs, this intimate toolkit offers both a deep examination of the seeds of racism and a step-by-step vision for effecting change.
