About the Event

REAL FRIENDS TALK ABOUT RACE is a guide for those who want to improve and gain more awareness about interracial relationships—whether it’s with friends, colleagues, or loved ones. In the book, Yseult and Hannah cover the ways that culture, history, and white supremacy have prevented us from having the skills to build trust and healthy relationships across race. Their book offers tools, personal stories, and guidance on strengthening allyship, understanding, and conversation.
