    So impressed by this volume. As I?m in to user experience, this approach is beautiful. This book made me think. I also love that it leaves people with action and next steps which is something usually left out of the discussion. ...

    Wonderful book that captures diverse stories from all different kinds of Americans. By the teen duo who created a textbook to illustrate racial literacy through stories. Easy to read. With lovely photo portraits of each person. Can imagine how this could be used in any classroom. ...

    Important read. Two young women take a gap year to travel across America interviewing people about race. Fascinating stories by amazing people. We don't talk about race enough in America. This book could help and serves as an example on how to frame conversations and questions. ...

    The authors? interjections of facts failed to challenge the conflation and confusion of race and ethnicity; they perpetuated it. Listening to that was akin to nails on a chalkboard for me. African American is not a race or a very effective label for an ethnic group seeing as how di...

    Important resource for learning to listen and engage with stories of race, class and gender from a younger perspective. Also good because there are lots of definitions as well as the authors motivation for the project and the emotional toll involved in this kind of work. Good starting ...

    These individuals set out to do exactly what they planned on: gathering stories from others from all walks of life and different parts of the country. Throughout reading, I felt amazed at the hardships and obstacles these individuals faced and was amazed at how certain events in their ...

    There are so many lives to live and no two are the same. This book is a thought provoking collection of snippets on race and intersectionality. I appreciated how most of the stories included pictures because I like to put a face with a story. I wish more people would read stories about...

    A great (and beautiful!) book for people looking to learn more about race. It's especially beginner friendly, but even folks who've studied ethnic studies will find new things to learn. It's also beautifully laid out, with photos of the interviewees, and fun facts about them. My fave f...

    "White people are so worried about being uncomfortable for one moment, while we're uncomfotable all the time. You really do get exhausted talking about this." "The oppressed shouldn't have to do it all. The oppressor needs to help out. White people need to talk to other White people...
