Courageous Discomfort: How to Have Important, Brave, Life-Changing Conversations About Race and Racism

by Rosalind Wiseman Author and Shanterra McBride Author

In this guide to having the difficult conversations about race, written by a white woman and a Black woman, find answers to 20 common questions about race and racism and strategies for more effectively communicating with others on this critically important issue. Authors Shanterra McBride and Rosalind Wiseman, friends for decades, dig deep into the lessons they've learned over their years doing anti-racism work together. Courageous Discomfort reminds the reader that there is no perfect way to address racism and racist situations, and gently encourages readers to view mistakes as learning opportunities and chances to do better next time. Great for book clubs and groups of employees or students hoping to engage in these tough conversations, this book is a powerful resource for building better relationships and combatting prejudice.
