In this timely update, author Glenn Singleton enables you to break the silence and open an authentic dialogue that forges a path to progress for racial equity. The third edition offers new coverage of the structural inequities in schools and society that have been exposed by the pandemic as well as heightened public awareness of racial injustice.

Courageous Conversations about Race allows you to deepen your personal understanding of race and its impact on all students. You will discover how to apply the strategy and protocol to

  • Embrace the four agreements—stay engaged, speak your truth, experience discomfort and accept non-closure—to deepen interracial dialogue

  • Build a foundation for advancing equity using the Six Conditions of Courageous Conversation

  • Examine the role of race in your life using the Courageous Conversation Compass to understand and guide your actions

  • Expand your capacity to lead others on the journey in addressing institutional racism disparities
