This is a memoir written by a middle-aged white woman. From the back cover: “For twenty-five years, Debby Irving sensed inexplicable racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a colleague and neighbor, she worried about offending people she dearly wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator, she didn’t understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction. As a teacher, she found her best efforts to students and families of color left her wondering what she was missing. Then, in 2009, one ‘aha!’ moment launched an adventure of discovery and insight that drastically shifted her worldview and upended her life plan.”
