About the book
Race is a powerful qualifier in our society, it shapes perceptions of who belongs and informs narratives of who we are as a community and as individuals. Using examples from her practice as a licensed psychologist and as an African American growing up in the South, Dr. Walker provides a way to enter into cross-racial discussion about race and race relations. Throughout her book Dr. Walker shares stories as examples of our racialized lives and poses questions for reader reflection.
