Overview

Talking Black and White: An Intercultural Exploration of Twenty-First-Century Racism, Prejudice, and Perception investigates domestic race-related social justice issues and intercultural communication between Black and White individuals. Twenty-first-century racism, racial tensions, prejudice, police brutality, #BLM, misperception, and the role of the past are deconstructed in an engaging, provocative, and accessible manner. Gina Castle Bell explores these dynamics through the lenses of intercultural communication, critical intercultural communication, critical race theory, critical theory, rhetoric, sociology, race and racism, interracial communication, Black communication, identity, identity negotiation, and communication theory. This is an ideal book for scholars, students, and working professionals who are interested in intercultural communication, race relations, and healthy communication across various areas of difference.
