Books recommended by Ibram X. Kendi and Georganne Wingerson           

Georganne Wingerson recommends Rising Out of Hatred, The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist by local author Eli Saslow.  There are some fascinating videos of author and subject done after the book was written that are worth viewing.  I wouldn’t put it first (written by a white about a white), but a fascinating history and read.
