“This is a book for every American, and I am grateful for McGhee’s research, her humanity, and her never-more-important teachings.” – Elizabeth Gilbert
“Now more than ever today, racial division as a tool wielded by those who are the most wealthy, the most powerful, and the most self-interested… it makes us demonize one another when, in fact, we should be linking arms to improve all of our lives.” – Heather McGhee
Heather McGhee’s specialty is the American economy – and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. She played a leadership role in steering the historic Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and was one of the key advocates credited for the adoption of the Volcker Rule. McGhee's compassionate and deeply-stirring New York Times bestseller, The Sum of Us, reveals the devastating true cost of racism for everyone and offers an actionable roadmap during one of the most critical – and most troubled – periods in history.
This conversation with Dr. Sharon Tettegah, UC Santa Barbara professor and director of the Center for Black Studies Research, will be followed by a Q&A.
