The author's first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when her parents told her they named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. She grew up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, and has spent her life navigating America's racial divide as a writer, a speaker, and an expert helping organizations practice genuine inclusion. While so many institutions claim to value diversity in their mission statements, many fall short of matching actions to words. Brown highlights how white middle-class evangelicalism has participated in the rise of racial hostility, and encourages the reader to confront apathy and recognize God's ongoing work in the world.

Good read. submitted by irksit on June 26, 2018, 1:21pm This book will step on your toes, challenge your beliefs, and make you more empathetic. It’s a quick and engaging read so you won’t feel too overwhelmed, but it will get you thinking.

Must Read submitted by krathje on August 20, 2018, 1:14am Austin Channing Brown is engaging and easy to read. I read this in a weekend -- the whole while enthralled by her story and interrogating my unconscious bias. Channing Brown is going to be around for a while.

Good place to start submitted by flemingj on July 7, 2021, 7:55pm It is great for us to get to hear things from Ms. Brown's perspective. Most of the time we will not hear from someone when we are being insensitive or just plain stupid.
