Tell Me Who You Are
Sharing Our Stories of Race, Culture, and IdentityBook - 2019
"In this deeply inspiring book, Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi recount their experiences talking to people about race and identity on a cross-country tour of the United States. Determined to ignite a substantive discussion about racism, these two young women deferred college admission for a year to travel to all fifty states, conducting hundreds of interviews that uncover how racism plays out in this country every day, and often in unexpected ways. Here, Guo and Vulchi uncover the lines that separate us based on race or other perceived differences and explore how telling our stories--and listening deeply to the stories of others--are the first and most crucial steps we can take toward negating racial inequity in our culture."--Back cover. Featuring interviews with over 150 Americans accompanied by their photographs, this intimate toolkit also offers a deep examination of the seeds of racism and strategies for effecting change. This groundbreaking book will inspire readers to join Guo and Vulchi in imagining an America in which we can fully understand and appreciate who we are.
