Product description


"So You Want to Talk About Race strikes the perfect balance of direct and brutally honest without being preachy or, worse, condescending. Regardless of your comfort level, educational background, or experience when it comes to talking about race, Ijeoma has created a wonderful tool to help broach these conversations and help us work toward a better world for people of color from all walks of life."
--FRANCHESCA RAMSEY, host and executive producer of MTV's Decoded and author of Well, That Escalated Quickly

"Ijeoma Oluo is armed with words. Her words are daggers that pierce through injustice, while also disarming you with humor and love."
--HARI KONDABOLU, comedian, writer, and co-host of Politically Re-Active

"Oluo has created a brilliant and thought-provoking work. Seamlessly connecting deeply moving personal stories with practical solutions, readers will leave with inspiration and tools to help create personal and societal transformations. A necessary read for any white person seriously committed to better understanding race in the United States."
--MATT McGORRY, actor

"I don't think I've ever seen a writer have such an instant, visceral, electric impact on readers. Ijeoma Oluo's intellectual clarity and moral sure-footedness make her the kind of unstoppable force that obliterates the very concept of immovable objects."
--LINDY WEST, New York Times bestselling author of Shrill

"You are not going to find a more user-friendly examination of race in America than Ijeoma Oluo's fantastic new book. The writing is elegantly simple, which is a real feat when tackling such a thorny issue. Think of it as Race for the Willing-to-Listen."
--ANDY RICHTER, writer and actor

"When you need a super team to help you make sense of today's complex conversation on identity and representation, Ijeoma needs to be your number one pick. No one cuts through the chatter with more humor, insight and clarity. No matter the issue, Ijeoma's thinking is always essential reading."
--JENNY YANG, comedian, writer, and co-founder and co-producer of Dis/orient/ed Comedy

"Straight talk to blacks and whites about the realities of racism. . . A clear and candid contribution to an essential conversation."

"Read it, then recommend it to everyone you know."
--Harper's Bazaar, "One of 10 Books to Read in 2018"

"Ijeoma Oluo has built a career on speaking truth to power... [here] she offers a guidebook for those who want to confront racism and white supremacy in their everyday lives, but are unsure where to start."

"Impassioned and unflinching"

Book Description
