THE SUM OF US What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together

by | Read by Heather McGhee

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Writer/narrator Heather McGhee, current chair of Color of Change's board and former president of the nonpartisan think tank Demos, engagingly explains how racism damages all Americans. Her expertise as a researcher and author of economic legislation is combined with reports from her personal tour of the U.S. She interviews other experts and ordinary people to expose the fallacy of our nation's capitalist tenet that if others were treated equitably, it would harm those who already are. While not a professional narrator, McGhee is a fine public speaker. Her voice appropriately expresses smiles or indignation as passages suggest. This audiobook is an excellent way to discover and attend to her important work. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
