Summary:
In this deeply inspiring book, Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi recount their experiences talking to people about race and identity on a cross-country tour of the United States. Determined to ignite a substantive discussion about racism, these two young women deferred college admission for a year to travel to all fifty states, conducting hundreds of interviews that uncover how racism plays out in this country every day, and often in unexpected ways. [Here], Guo and Vulchi uncover the lines that separate us based on race or other perceived differences and explore how telling our stories--and listening deeply to the stories of others--are the first and most crucial steps we can take toward negating racial inequity in our culture. --
