The Painted Man: What My Son Taught Me About Race
by Desmond Williams
Another great find! Father in a multiracial family, Desmond Williams, puts pen (pencil) to paper and creates a soon-to-be-published graphic novel The Painted Man: What My Young Son Taught Me About Race. The collection is a "coming of race” memoir that finds a dad confronted by racially charged questions posed directly by his young son and the people with whom they come into contact. This book can be used as a conversation starter, a self-reflection inducer, or simply a window into an experience that might not reflect your own. More about The Painted Man
