Beyond Charlottesville: Taking a Stand Against White Nationalism

Racism. For those readers who can set aside partisan politics (there must still be at least a minyan of us left who can do that), former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s book titled, Beyond Charlottesville: Taking a Stand Against White Nationalism, helps us reflect about racism in the United States and what to do about it. The death of Heather Heyer and two Virginia state troopers during the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville grabbed national attention. McAuliffe describes that event from his perspective at the time as governor and calls on citizens to unite in a fight against racism, hate and extremism. Even if you read this book as a fierce partisan, consider what tangible steps you can take toward addressing racism in our divided nation whether you agree with McAuliffe or not.
