    This is a great book, especially for folks actively working on unlearning racism (hopefully everyone!) and anyone who facilitates conversations about racism. The book is organized into two sections, "For People of Color" and "For Whites." Each "chapter" is basically just a prompt like (for POC): "In order to unlearn racism, what do you need or want from white folks?" or (for both groups): "When did you first experience racism? What happened and how did it affect you?" followed by responses from This is a great book, especially for folks actively working on unlearning racism (hopefully everyone!) and anyone who facilitates conversations about racism. The book is organized into two sections, "For People of Color" and "For Whites." Each "chapter" is basically just a prompt like (for POC): "In order to unlearn racism, what do you need or want from white folks?" or (for both groups): "When did you first experience racism? What happened and how did it affect you?" followed by responses from actual people responding honestly to the question (each response ranges from one paragraph to a page). It is very interesting to read what people have to say, how their biases show, and how their experiences have affected them. I took a break halfway through the book to read some other books.... the format was initially a little hard to get into because there is no plot or argument to drive things along. But I revisited it to finish it and feel like it was really rich. Worth checking out. Works as a reference book or something to read through!
