Now available for pre-order from wherever good books are sold! My new anthology with Minnesota Historical Society Press A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota.
From the publisher:
Essays that challenge, discomfort, disorient, galvanize, and inspire all of us to evolve now, for our shared future.
In this provocative book, sixteen of Minnesota’s best writers provide a range of perspectives on what it is like to live as a person of color in Minnesota. They give readers a splendid gift: the gift of touching another human being’s inner reality, behind masks and veils and politeness. They bring us generously into experiences that we must understand if we are to come together in real relationships.
Minnesota communities struggle with some of the nation’s worst racial disparities. As its authors confront and consider the realities that lie beneath the numbers, this book provides an important tool to those who want to be part of closing those gaps.
