Austin Channing Brown's first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, Austin writes, "I had to learn what it means to love blackness", a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America's racial divide as a writer, speaker, and expert who helps organizations practice genuine inclusion.

This book was heart-wrenching, eloquent, and so worth the read. it made me realize so many things; that as a white-ally, I no longer have the option to do nothing. My voice should always come later than marginalized voices, but it should be loud when speaking as an ally to people who just don't get it. Thank you, Austin, for writing this book and allowing me to get a glimpse in your journey. I, a white woman, will never be able to understand, but may we make this world a better place for your children, and theirs.
