    One of the most important books I've ever read.

    It is beyond my abilities to describe my reaction to this book. I can describe how it made me, a privileged white Canadian woman, feel: overwhelmed, touched, terrified, angry, guilty, helpless, conscious, at a loss. I have often felt this way, but then I forget and move on and go back to my world because it's easy. That is privilege. That is the action of a Dreamer. I do not want to be a Dreamer and that is what I will remember when I make choices moving forward. Read this book, if you haven't already. Its effect is profound.

    Moving and powerful

    This should be required reading for all white Americans to better understand history and empathy and for reflection. This conversation can change the world.

    Journey of being black

    This is an excellent book written as a conversation or letter between a father and a teenager. Talked about the plight of being black in past, present and future American society.

    Brutally honest and challenging!

    Author, Ta-Nehisi Coates, has written the most unapologetic and brutally honest book about the racial divide in America that I have ever encountered. Yes, it is a hard read for someone raised in the Jim Crow south and descendent of former slave owners, but it is well worth it! The author's voice comes through as a love letter to his son and as an inner dialogue with himself. The reader is left to examine his or her own assumptions and duplicity in the struggles of all persons.
