So You Want To Talk About Race | 22 | 2020 Countdown

Welcome to Day 3 of my 2020 Book Spotlight Countdown! For more information about this series, please read my introductory post here. Today, I’m celebrating So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo!

22nd of 2020

The first non-fiction book of the countdown, So You Want to Talk About Race is a candid conversation about Oluo’s own experiences, as well as wider contexts. Topics covered include the school-to-prison pipeline, checking your privilege, cultural appropriation, microaggressions, the model minority, and much more. This is a very accessible work on race and racism, so it might be a good starting point if you have not read a lot in this area. Oluo brings an American perspective so again, this might be particularly pertinent if you’re American. And especially important if you’re white.

If you’ve read Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, or White Fragility, this book can offer another perspective to your understanding of racism.
