about this item

Tragic events of the past year, including the shooting deaths of unarmed Black men and the unwarranted charges of espionage against Chinese Americans have made the need for engaging in honest racial dialogue all the more pressing. Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence provides a concrete set of guidelines and solutions for engaging in honest racial dialogue to help us become agents of change.  Based on his extensive research on microaggressions, Dr. Sue exposes the explicit and hidden rules that govern race talk and uncover why conversations that touch on racial issues are so difficult. The individual and societal costs of our inability to converse honestly and openly about race are covered along with the benefits of holding successful conversations and discussions around race.Race Talk offers guidelines, techniques, and advice on how to navigate conversations and lead discussions on racial topics, resulting in improved communication, despelled stereotypes, decreased fear of differences, and increased compassion and empathy.
