Finally, a National Conversation on Race!

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

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 to chart a positive direction for race in America.

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