Year of Reading Dangerously-Marc Aronson

I just finished my Reading Dangerously book for May, Race: A History Beyond Black and White by Marc Aronson. (Yes, I know I’m behind, but I already started my June selection.) I found it enlightening on some points, provocative, and quite readable-and this is an issue that has been side-stepped too much since the explosiveness of the 1960s.

    Hey, I just read the book. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Since I was a child, I have wondered about and struggled with this issue. I don’t want to behave as a racist, but I also do not know how to act with someone very different. Knowing that so many things are perceived as racism. I don’t think we can escape prejudice, but with recognition of it for what it is, we can act with better intentions. I find it interesting that Aronson writes of this same confusion and hesitancy that I have.
