Winning Hearts and Minds
How can white Americans come to care enough about racism that they move from passivity to action for racial justice? This book looked for clues to answer that question by examining the lives and self-understanding of white people who have made that move and became committed activists for racial justice. This chapter brings the pieces together to develop a more integrated explanation, highlighting the broader implications of the findings of this project for advancing racial justice in the United States. It also notes how Barack Obama gave white Americans a chance to support a better future for themselves, for people of color, and for the entire country. The chapter explains how whites can come to support racial justice not just because they should do so, but also because they fully embrace the cause as their own.
