About Gail Christopher and Heather McGhee Racism is the common denominator of our most vexing public problems. But not just in the most obvious indignities for people of color. Racism has costs for white people, too. How did this happen? And is there a way out? In The Sum of Us, McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: gains that come when people come together across race, to accomplish what we simply can't do on our own. Dr. Gail Christopher is an award-winning social change agent and driving force behind the America Healing initiative and the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation movement, a comprehensive, national and community-based process to bring about transformational and sustainable change. Through TRHT, collaborators address the historic and contemporary effects of racism in their communities and institutions. They work to replace the deeply held belief system that fuels racism with one that sees the inherent value of all people.
