  • Transforming Our Conceptions of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society
  • john a. powell
  • Foreword by David R. Roediger

"powell sets forth a powerful argument that…until we expand our sense of self, we will be unable to create the racially egalitarian and democratic society to which many progressives aspire…. A brilliantly original and provocative challenge to the current social order."

— Michael Omi, author of Racial Formation in the United States: From the 1960s to the 1990s

Renowned social justice advocate john a. powell persuasively argues that we have not achieved a post-racial society and that there is much work to do to redeem the American promise of inclusive democracy. Culled from a decade of writing about social justice and spirituality, these meditations on race, identity, and social policy provide an outline for laying claim to our shared humanity and a way toward healing ourselves and securing our future. Racing to Justice challenges us to replace attitudes and institutions that promote and perpetuate social suffering with those that foster relationships and a way of being that transcends disconnection and separation.
