Our country is facing a reckoning on race relations. The 2020 murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others ignited a racial justice and social change wave analogous to how Emmett Till's murder catalyzed the Civil Rights Movement 65 years ago.
Research from the Opportunity Agenda reveals that stories of our lived experiences, more so than data and numbers, is what evokes the empathy that changes hearts and minds.
As the nation grapples with the fierce urgency of empathy, I Too Am America provides readers with insights, inspiration that humanizes the stories of Black men and boys, while offering strategic recommendations on how we move from racial reckoning to racial resolution.
