I’ll be leading a breakout on Transracial Adoption at the Together for Adoption Conference. In preparation I went back to a list of books I started compiling last year. I had asked a few of my black friends what books they would want every white person to read if they could. Here’s the list:
“Losing the Race: Self Sabotage in Black America” by John McWhorter
“Divided by Faith” by Michael Emerson and Christian Smith
“Gracism” by David Anderson
“Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison
“What’s So Amazing About Grace” by Philip Yancey
“Black and Free” by Tom Skinner
“Let Justice Roll Down” by John Perkins
“Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr” by by Martin Luther King Jr.
“Autobiography of Malcolm X” by Malcolm X
“The Color of Water” by James McBride
I would encourage you to ask Pastor Anyabwile what he would recommend. His MP3 library and contact info are below.
