Self-Portrait in Black and White: Unlearning Race

Categories. If Thomas Chatterton Williams can’t convince you that our racial constructs are meaningless, no one can. In his book titled, Self-Portrait in Black and White: Unlearning Race, Williams uses the backdrop of his own identity and the strains of black and white and how he is perceived as a way to ditch some categories as he applies principles that make sense. This book should lead most readers to rethink our notions of race. Some readers may find his book controversial. I didn’t. I listened to the struggle of a son and a father trying to unlearn the categories relating to race. Williams writes of big things in a light way, inviting readers to join him in moving ahead.
