Just Us: An American Conversation, by Claudia Rankine


This is so different and SO GREAT. I could read this five times and continue to enjoy it and find new and different ideas to wrestle with.

Just Us is a collection of anecdotes, research, pictures, therapy sessions, poems, and diary-like entries. The end of each chapter has extensive footnotes and fact-checking. The book centers around race and privilege as told by the author, Claudia Rankine, a black woman. It is unlike any other book I've read in this space. The mix of the relational, emotional, and scientific was captivating.

I would highly recommend this! I'd also recommend reading it as a book because of the pictures and extensive footnotes.
