Bill Drake's Book
This is the first time I’ve blogged about a book that isn’t for kids, but this one got me so excited I couldn’t resist sharing about it.
Almost Hereditary: A White Southerner’s Journey Out of Racism by Bill Drake is amazing!
Last week I jokingly posted something about being an anti-bigot bigot, but reading this book made me realize my attitude toward racial and religious bigots is really not very different from their attitudes.
The book is part biography, part history, and part information to help readers recognize and overcome their own prejudices. It’s well written and even some of the appendices are interesting to read.
With everything going on in the news lately, I wish everyone would read this book.
