Witnessing Whiteness: the Need to Talk about Race and How to Do It provides a compelling look at what it means to be white in America, bringing insight for white people as well as being a valuable tool for people of color.  Using rich storytelling and frank self-reflection, author Shelly Tochluk  has created a powerful book which leads readers through a clear analysis of why and how white people remain ignorant of and afraid to acknowledge racism to laying a practical framework for action.  Unraveling the knot of privilege and unawareness that so often binds white Americans and weakens the struggle for racial justice, this book is indispensable for white people who sense that racism is wrong but don’t know where to start.

The book is presently displayed on top of the library shelving but may be found later on the shelves numerically under 305.8 To.
