The author's first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when her parents told her they named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. She grew up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, and has spent her life navigating America's racial divide as a writer, a speaker, and an expert helping organizations practice genuine inclusion. While so many institutions claim to value diversity in their mission statements, many fall short of matching actions to words. Brown highlights how white middle-class evangelicalism has participated in the rise of racial hostility, and encourages the reader to confront apathy and recognize God's ongoing work in the world.

I read this book in two days. I can see where some will have an issue with it and for that I can simply offer to read it with an open heart, seeking to understand other experiences. It definitely makes me think, the words were changing, challenging me to think about "reality" and what I really know about it, challenging me to think about assumptions I make. Sometimes it was difficult to read. Other times, I could relate through my own window of experience and it caused my window to become bigger, letting in more varied experiences. In my opinion, it's not a "one and done" kind of book.... I believe I will get other things out of it when I read it again.
