So You Want to Talk About Race

So You Want to Talk About Race (backordered as of 7/15/20) by Ijeoma Oluo is a fantastic book. While I was disappointed that Oluo did not read it herself, the narrator did a good job. I’ve done a lot of driving back and forth to the beach this summer and this was a great listen. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 8 about schools and Chapter 12 on microagressions. Overall, though, it provided such a great way to think about talking about race and issues of race. I also appreciated the stories she told about her own life experiences. Some of the book repeated information I have learned in other books, but overall, if there is only one book you choose to read about race this summer, I would choose this one.
