This book supports those who seek to
  • understand the cultural status quo in terms of societal racial power dynamics,
  • develop greater awareness and understanding of their own racial identity,
  • undo racism in themselves and in their spheres of influence,
  • participate in authentic dialogue across race difference.
The authors are educators, coaches, and organization development practitioners who specialize in diversity-inclusion, culture change, and leadership development. We seek in our writing to heal wounds in the psyches of individuals, the strains in interpersonal and intergroup relations across race differences, and the social fabric of the nation and its institutions, all of which are the legacy of racism. We believe in walking the talk, doing the work, and being the change. The search for race and culture equity is but part of the larger struggle for recognition, acceptance, and respect for humankind in all its multiplicity.

Highly readable and graphically documented.

Reader Comments about Journeys of Race, Color & Culture
....a richly resourced book....applicabl(e) for classroom settings because of ....historical accuracy and relevance in the current context.. ..! (I) have used it effectively and successfully across a wide range of initiatives in corporate settings, ranging from culture change efforts to one-on one-coaching .... (A)s a journey, (it) provid(es) the reader with a map that is a picture of hope reflecting an evolution of what is possible at the intersections of race, color, and culture, if we have the tenacity to remain on the journey in an authentic way.”  Ralph E. de Chabert, SVP, Chief Diversity Officer, Brown-Forman Corporation.

The dynamics and theory that (this book and Continuum) expounds is the most profound analysis of what it means to be a Person of Color within the United States and beyond, empowering us with a way forward amidst the presently dispiriting chain of events.”  Lennox Joseph, PhD, Advisor, Organizational Effectiveness & Development, The World Bank

As a European who has lived and worked in Africa and Asia for more than 30 years, I thought I had a reasonable grasp of diversity and inter-cultural human interactions The presentation of the Continuum increased my awareness beyond anything I had previously imagined and highlighted areas that had been hidden to my view. I continue to use it and refer to it in my work.”  Mette Jacobsgaard, LLM & MPhil, Country Director, Kenya - International Development and Law Organisation
