America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America

America's problem with race has deep roots. With the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another, racism is truly our nation's original sin. And as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from this legacy of bigotry. The old patterns of white privilege are colliding with the changing demographics of a diverse nation. How they can we work together to overcome the embedded racism in America, galvanizing a movement to cross the bridge to a new America? (Book signing to follow.)
