“Heather McGhee Presents The Sum of Us” will take place Tuesday, March 2, 7 p.m.
Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Book Festival, Black Mountain Institute, Literary Arts, and The Loft’s WordPlay, Heather McGhee will appear live on Crowdcast to discuss her new book.
“The Sum of Us” is a brilliant analysis of how we arrived here: divided and self-destructing, materially rich but spiritually starved and vastly unequal. McGhee marshals economic and sociological research to paint an irrefutable story of racism’s costs, but at the heart of the book are the humble stories of people yearning to be part of a better America, including white supremacy’s collateral victims: white people themselves. With startling empathy, this heartfelt message from a Black woman to a multiracial America leaves us with a new vision for a future in which we finally realize that life can be more than zero-sum.
