Finally, a National Conversation on Race!

09/29/2010 08:49 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

For years, we've all been lamenting the lack of a real, meaningful national discussion on race.

Starting TODAY, we hope you'll join with us to fix that.

I am very excited to announce today the "Race & America's Future Virtual Book Club" - a six-week, online book club exploring the challenges and opportunities facing our changing nation.

The club will be based around the structure of Uncommon Common Ground: Race and America's Future, a new book I had the pleasure of writing with USC Professor Manuel Pastor and Asian American civil rights leader Stewart Kwoh.

Join us at www.UncommonCommonGround.org/BookClub

Every Wednesday starting Sept. 29, we will host an online conversation looking at crucial issues facing America as we push toward 2050 and our inevitable future as a nation with no majority ethnic or racial group.

Sept. 29: Are We Post-Racial Yet?
Oct. 6: Color Lines: Growing and Accepting Diversity
Oct. 13: Race and the Economy
Oct. 20: Urgent Challenges: Immigration, Incarceration, and Climate Change
Oct. 27: New Leadership for now and 2050
Nov. 3: Equity is the Superior Growth Model

We hope you'll join us today and every Wednesday through Election Day at www.UncommonCommonGround.org/BookClub to chart a positive direction for race in America.

Watch the video. Share your story. Listen to others. Build a path to change.
