"The Sum of Us"

A Community Conversation​

“The Sum of Us,” by Heather McGhee, is a story told from an economist’s perspective of how racism affects and has affected both people of color as well as white people over the generations with a systemic “Zero Sum” philosophy (“Progress for people of color means a loss for white people.”). McGhee ends with the “Solidarity Dividend” (that benefits us all) philosophy and positive actions we can take.

We recommend that you try to read the book prior to November 13. If you do not have time for that, a web folder with resources lists informative podcasts and study guides can be found HERE.
