"Waking Up White:" New Hampshire Tackles Tough Conversations About Race

white.jpg

Author Debby Irving's memoir, "Waking Up White" serves as inspiration for New Hampshire's Oyster River community, as it reflects on tough questions about race and tolerance.  The discussions come after incidents revealing discrimination and racism, in an area where many believed they had the best intentions.  We examine how a state like New Hampshire, that is mostly white, fits into the national narrative of racial strife, now and in the past.

GUESTS:  

 NHPR's Word Of Mouth talked with author Debby Irving in 2015.

Here's a link to the Oyster River Community Reads list of events and resources.
