Whether as an individual, business, or organization, we are all somewhere along a developmental continuum relating to issues around race. In The Journey of an Old White Dude in the Age of Black Lives Matter: A Primer, John Gerdy educates and challenges us to move a bit further along that continuum.
While POC should occupy the majority of space to articulate these issues, there is only so much Black people can tell White people about them. To that end, Gerdy writes specifically as one old White dude directly to other White folks, with a profound sense of respect and humility.
If you are considering embarking on a similar journey of understanding and action, Gerdy provides a story and path that will resonate. This is a book of real-life experiences, research conducted, lessons learned, issues analyzed, and resources provided, ending with an inspirational call to action.
