When Race Becomes Real: Black and White Writers Confront Their Personal Histories--#54 finished

This is a good read that makes you think.  It was put together in 2002 and it seems a lot has happened in the time since then.  We have had our first black President and lately have had protests about police actions against African Americans.  Reading this book and their insights I kept wondering what they would say today and I imagine a lot of the same things they were saying then.  Our new President and  the campaign brought racial issues back in front but instead of blacks as the focus it was hispanics.  Racial politics continues on.  It is the personal relationships where change needs to occur and it probably is in many areas.  A good read.

I have posted it on PBS, it is the only copy but not sure if it will move or not.
