A Seattle-based writer who has been a significant part of numerous panels and forums, and whose writing has appeared in publications near and far—The Guardian, New York magazine, xoJane, and Jezebel, among them—Ijeoma Oluo is here this evening, as part of the launch of her nationally-significant first book, So You Want to Talk About Race (Seal Press). Ijeoma Oluo is also an editor-at-large with The Establishment. This, a night not to be missed.
"So You Want to Talk About Race strikes the perfect balance of direct and brutally honest without being preachy or, worse, condescending. Regardless of your comfort level, educational background, or experience when it comes to talking about race, Ijeoma has created a wonderful tool to help broach these conversations and help us work toward a better world for people of color from all walks of life." —Franchesca Ramsey.
"I don't think I've ever seen a writer have such an instant, visceral, electric impact on readers. Ijeoma Oluo's intellectual clarity and moral sure-footedness make her the kind of unstoppable force that obliterates the very concept of immovable objects." —Lindy West.
