“Oluo gives us — both white people and people of color — that language to engage in clear, constructive, and confident dialogue with each other about how to deal with racial prejudices and biases.” — National Book Review

“Generous and empathetic, yet usefully blunt... it’s for anyone who wants to be smarter and more empathetic about matters of race and engage in more productive anti-racist action.” — Salon

 

 

"So You Want to Talk About Race is warm and foundational enough for people beginning their journey to understanding racism in America, and thought-provoking and challenging enough for people who believe themselves to be well-versed on the subject. In short, it's for everyone. Ijeoma's voice cuts through all the noise and stays with you." — Emily V. Gordon, co-writer of The Big Sick and author of Super You: Release Your Inner Superhero
