For me: A seminal book. Growing up in a racist household in far west Texas, a few miles from El Paso, my family's language and behavior instructed me to ignore the Latinos who were my classmates. My mother refused admittance to our apartment for my friend that had come home with me to play after a day in first grade. From second grade through eighth grade I was one of the three white girls who spent seven years together as classmates; they were not friends. My friends were two or three Latino girls with whom I could talk, but never invite home. Working in a large urban school district led me to teaching in a newly 'desegregated' environment. A challenge, to say the least. And, I did it for 40 years. McGhee covers it all. Bravas to her and her family. Wisdom!!! ( )

This phenomenal book is a tremendous resource that I wish everyone in the United States would read. It is well researched and accessible. It is eye-opening and inspirational. It shines a bright light on systemic racism yet provides a cast of hope for how life in America can change and highlights those that have been leaders, both quiet and vocal. The intimate stories and abhorring facts make this a reading experience that may best be done in a group so that the information you take in can be put into specific action steps in response and not leave you in a state of overwhelm.

The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We can Prosper Together by Heather McGhee lays out the history in ten chapters, each focusing on a different economic or societal area. Each chapter presents data and individual stories that make the data personal and perhaps more understandable and relatable. I walk away educated and with the certainty that I have a lot more still to learn.

The Sum of Us, all of us together, is far better for each of us than when we take a zero-sum, either/or, approach. Said differently, segregation hurts everyone, not just the oppressed. And equity benefits everyone, all levels in society.

McGhee carefully and articulately unpacks these concepts, in a hopeful manner, for the reader to understand.

This book was recommended by a friend and was a great complement to Caste, a book he also recommended. I listened to it on Audible. ( )

Incredibly insightful and forward-thinking, McGhee offers her proposition of how we can all move past racism, to the benefit of all Americans. Painful to read, and at times a bit of a slog, this should still be on the must-read list. (Nearly two-hundred-page bibliography at the end of the book.) ( )

I am amazed with your storytelling, great job! If you allow, may I share your book to facebook in order to reach more readers? And by the way, NovelStar is currently conducting a writing competition - You have a great potential.
