Through these stories across the nation they show how much more we can be if we make the effort to acknowledge and understand not only what every being brings to this planet but also, the systems and histories that created our current existence. Thoughtful and compassionate, Vulchi and Guo blaze a path that others will be happy to follow.

    Important resource for learning to listen and engage with stories of race, class and gender from a younger perspective. Also good because there are lots of definitions as well as the authors motivation for the project and the emotional toll involved in this kind of work. Good starting point for those willing to identify biases and truly engage.

    An enlightening exposure of our strengths, weaknesses and dreams as a society.

    These individuals set out to do exactly what they planned on: gathering stories from others from all walks of life and different parts of the country. Throughout reading, I felt amazed at the hardships and obstacles these individuals faced and was amazed at how certain events in their lives shaped their worldview and how they worked to change the perception of the groups they identify with. Reading this has motivated me to share my own story and share my experiences with others whom I can relate

    Wonderful book that captures diverse stories from all different kinds of Americans. By the teen duo who created a textbook to illustrate racial literacy through stories. Easy to read. With lovely photo portraits of each person. Can imagine how this could be used in any classroom.

  • Michelle

    So impressed by this volume. As I’m in to user experience, this approach is beautiful. This book made me think. I also love that it leaves people with action and next steps which is something usually left out of the discussion.

    In Tell Me Who You Are, Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo do exactly that--tell us who they are, how they have come to thinking so carefully, so deeply about race, and how they want to create change. From Alaska to Florida they visit all fifty of these United States to talk to people about their experiences of race and the intersections of identity in America. This book is at once hopeful, raw, and brimming with curiosity, engagement and youthful energy. Through the conversations these women have with

All you have to do is turn the page.

    Important read. Two young women take a gap year to travel across America interviewing people about race. Fascinating stories by amazing people.

    We don't talk about race enough in America. This book could help and serves as an example on how to frame conversations and questions.

  • Emily

    There are so many lives to live and no two are the same. This book is a thought provoking collection of snippets on race and intersectionality. I appreciated how most of the stories included pictures because I like to put a face with a story. I wish more people would read stories about people difgerent from them.

  • Meaghan Baker

    An empathetic look at life through the lens/experiences of many. Worth a read.
