Racing to Justice, New edition

Transforming Our Conceptions of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society

Renowned social justice advocate john a. powell persuasively argues that we have yet to achieve a truly post-racial society and that there is much work to be done to redeem the American promise of inclusive democracy.

Culled from a decade of writing about social justice and spirituality, these meditations on race, identity, and social policy provide an outline for laying claim to our shared humanity and a way toward healing ourselves and securing our future. With an updated foreword and a new chapter on polarization, this new edition continues to challenge us to replace the attitudes and institutions that promote and perpetuate social suffering with those that foster relationships and a way of being that transcends disconnection and separation.

 powell's thought provoking book offers the reader a look into the issues that continue to plague our society. It is reminder that we have yet to address and concur with the challenges we face in providing equal opportunities for all people in this country and the world.
