How We Ended Racism: Realizing a New Possibility in One Generation
"It's the year 2050… and racism has ended."
Could this really be our future? If so, what has to happen now to achieve such a radical change? In How We Ended Racism, Justin Michael Williams and Shelly Tygielski reveal a path for real and lasting global impact—not just talking about it, studying it, or making small steps, but actually ending racism in one generation.
Written for conservatives and liberals—and everyone in between.
Williams and Tygielski draw from a wide array of scientific studies as well as their practical successes in teaching a multitude of diverse groups across perceived "divides" to show us how to shift our perspective and enact lasting change in our families, workplaces, communities, and beyond.
Justin Michael Williams brings people together across divides with a multigenerational message of hope, empowerment, and unity. He is an award-winning speaker, GRAMMY®-nominated recording artist, and author of Stay Woke: A Meditation Guide for the Rest of Us and How We Ended Racism: Realizing a New Possibility in One Generation (with Shelly Tygielski).
