Groundbreaking Workbook on Race Gets Personal

DETROIT, MICHIGAN – December 1, 2020

What happens when a small group of black and white men – left, right, young, old, liberals, centrists and conservatives – regularly meets for more than two years to talk about race?

Not what you’d expect.

Instead of an anthology of what separates us as black and white, 12 men developed a simple, personalized workbook on how to stand as light in the dim world of American racial separation, bitterness and division.

Creating Positive Race Relations: What You Can Do to Make a Difference is a small workbook, void of politics, combining very short open, perplexing and sometimes searing accounts of how race meets us at work, at home, school and play. Each of a dozen true hyper-short stories from the authors – black and white – leads to insightful questions for the reader to answer. There are even options to log incremental but meaningful personal commitments related to each story that could change your world and impact others.

Editor of the workbook is Taylor Cox Jr., PhD, an award-winning published researcher and specialist covering diversity in these United States.

“I think this is the first time I’ve seen a workbook that is void of the kind of finger-wagging lectures that many writings on this subject fall into”, says Cox. “Instead, Creating Positive Race Relations reflects a synthesis of common thinking across a broad swath of black, white, and political orientations that requires honesty and introspection from each workbook participant.”

Creating Positive Race Relations: What You Can Do to Make a Difference is published by Westbow Press (retail price $13.95) and is available online at Westbow, on Amazon, and through quality online bookstores. Media interviews with Taylor Cox are available on request.
