Advance Praise for Longing: Stories of Racial Healing
"Rabbi Abraham Heschel once noted that, 'Racism is man's gravest threat to man - the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.' More than any that I have read in the past decade, this wonderful collection of stories promises to contribute much to the reduction of this threat. Longing: Stories of Racial Healing is intelligent and warm, yet it is neither pedantic nor sentimental; it is engaging, beautifully written, and wonderful for the many, many insights that it contains. To anyone who is wondering about a perspective that may help to lead us forward, it can be recommended with confidence and without reservation."
-Dr. Michael Penn, professor of psychology at Franklin & Marshall College, member of the Tahirih Justice Center, and author of "Overcoming Violence Against Women and Girls: The International Campaign to Eradicate a Worldwide Problem."

"Racial Awareness is a long process of psychological and emotional growiing up. By letting us into their minds, their apprehensions, and their own shortcomings, [the authors] permit others to see the possibilities of true freedom fromt he chaos of individual racism. If we are ever to master the psycho-emotional ruin created by racism, it is prmarily through such courageous journeys as this. Their courage will encourage others, of whatever generation, of whatever race or nationality."
-Dr. Robin Chandler, associate professor of African-American Studies and member of the Institute on Race and Justice at Northeastern University.
