Overview

In this personal and practical look at black/white relations in the United States, Dr. George Henderson examines differences between blacks and whites from a cross-cultural perspective. Written for white Americans, the goal of Our Souls to Keep: Black/White Relations in America is not to belabor the problems of race but rather to discuss the impact of these differences and offer suggestions for dealing with them effectively.Our Souls to Keep is an excellent text for use in African American studies courses, sociology and anthropology courses with a component on black/white race and ethnic relations, and diversity training programs designed specifically to reduce racism and prejudice. It's an essential resource for teachers, students, businesspeople, and anyone committed to coming to grips with racism and its effects in the United States. With candor, balance, and the wisdom that comes only with experience, George Henderson reaches out to whites and calls us to cross the racial divide. I highly recommend Our Souls to Keep for any sensitive white reader willing to take up that challenge. -Morris Dees, Southern Poverty Law Center Contents Preface Acknowledgments Introduction Part I: Black History and Culture 1 Traditional African American Culture 2 Search for Identity: A Dream Deferred 3 Talking Black, Thinking Black: Communication and Values Part II: Community, School, and Workplace 4 Black Communities and the Perils of Segregation 5 Teaching Black Children 6 Supervising Black Workers Part III.

Editorial Reviews

Intercultural Press
This dynamic book examines the cultural differences between blacks and whites and explores the effect these have on community, school and workplace relationships. The author offers guidelines for white readers on how to communicate and interact more effectively with African Amercans in dealing with segregation, teaching black students, and supervising black employees. He ends with a powerful afterword in which he describes the triumphs and struggle of black America and calls for a coalition of blacks and whites to come to grips with them in the years ahead.
Library Journal
The book imparts its message on both an intellectual and emotional level- a major step toward helping to "keep each other's souls from being tarnished by ignorance, neglect, hatred, or indifference." Highly recommended.
