This book is absolutely critical for both my students of color and my white students. We are reading informational texts in conjunction with "So You Want to Talk About Race" in order to identify the nuances of intersectionality in our own lives and reflect on our relationship to power in the United States. Ijeorma Oluo powerfully opens a dialogue about racism as a system in the United States through her experiences as an African American woman in our country. This book serves as a mirror for many of my students, reflecting their own experiences and making the literature we read both accessible and engaging. It also serves as a window for my students who may not relate to Ijeorma Oluo's experiences, giving them more understanding and empathy in regards to facing systemic oppression in the United States.
