Many people struggle to have honest conversations about race, even those who consider themselves allies or identify as anti-racist. For anyone who wants to have better, more productive discussions, COURAGEOUS DISCOMFORT is an empowering handbook that teaches you how to do just that.
Rosalind Wiseman and Shanterra McBride work in communities all over the country, from the most conservative to the most liberal, having candid conversations that bring people together and inspire a sense of hope.
They wrote Courageous Discomfort to help bring common sense and dignity to how we talk about race and racism. We do this through answering the 20 most common, uncomfortable, but critical questions we get asked about race and racism, including:
- Should I see color?
- What if I say something wrong?
- How racist does someone have to be for me to say something?
There is no perfect solution or script for every maybe-racist, sort-of-racist, or blatantly-racist situation we can find ourselves in. And that’s ok! Courageous Discomfort shows you how to handle whatever situation you find yourself in with skill, confidence, and dignity.
