Still anxious to talk about racism? Learn how to join this crucial conversation.

While we know the time to talk about racism is long overdue, many white people are still anxious to talk about it. Guilt, shame, discomfort, fear of being called a racist or saying the wrong thing are just some of the feelings that hold us back from the critical conversations happening around racism and racial equity today. 

In this updated and expanded second edition, anti-racism teacher Carolyn Helsel offers 30% new material for this season of the racial justice movement, including new research and stories, spiritual practices for race talk, and tips for talking to children about racism. 

Get better at having the hard conversations about racism. Reflection questions close each chapter, making this book ideal for sharing with a friend, a small group, or book club.
