Summary
"Bringing a poetic sensibility to her prose to stunning effect, Lythcott-Haims briskly and stirringly evokes her personal battle with the low self-esteem that American racism routinely inflicts on people of color. The only child of a marriage between an African American father and a white British mother, she shows indelibly how so-called microaggressions, in addition to blunt-force insults, can puncture a person's inner life with a thousand sharp cuts. Real American expresses also, through Lythcott-Haims's path to self-acceptance, the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered "the other." -- From Book jacket
Summary
Shares the story of the author's biracial upbringing in an America where ubiquitous and socially accepted racist norms constantly challenged her self-esteem, prompting her award-winning career in education and her perspectives on wisdom and the healing power of community
