Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a soberly inspiring book about citizens who have struggled to find respectful and productive ways of relating through dialogue across the racial, social, and economic differences that dangerously divide us. It is sobering because they have tackled inwardly and outwardly one of the greatest threats to civilization’s survival; inspiring because they have changed lives and communities. I pray fervently that the seeds they have sown will spread widely and deeply.

(Harold H. Saunders, Chairman and President, International Institute for Sustained Dialogue, former Assistant Secretary of State)

Rob Corcoran's Trustbuilding reaffirms the moral imperative inherent in racial reconciliation. We are each responsible for spanning the great chasms created by racist ideology, widened by racial oppression, and deepened by historical blindness. Corcoran urges us to engage one another, build bridges, and cross the remaining divides. He offers us examples of what is possible, and tools with which to begin our own wor

(Hannibal B. Johnson, author of Acres of Aspiration)

Format: Hardcover
Bob Corcoran spoke to an audience at Johns Hopkins University School for Advanced International Studies (1740 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, DC) on Tues. March 9, 2010. The Conflict Prevention & Resolution Forum organized "Conflict in Our Own Backyard: Prospects for Racial Reconciliation." I listened carefully as he reported the work of Hope in the Cities - honest conversation and sustained partnerships across boundaries that often separate us from one another. The author and his courageous and inspiring co-leaders at Initiatives of Change have brought racial healing in Richmond, Virginia. Since Richmond was a major slave market, the capital of the Confederate States of America, and a center of "Massive Resistance" to the Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954, which ended the "separate but equal" injustice in U.S. education, this record of achievement confounds skeptics. I find his historical narrative almost flawless and am inspired by his chapters 16-20, which summarize lessons learned and practical tools and skills for staying at the table during painful conversations. I will close this rave with one truth Bob retells: forgiving is not forgetting; it is letting go of the hurt. (p. 262).

What a wonderful resource and inspiration for anyone wanting to build better community relations. A host of stories that show what can be done as we accept responsibilty for ourselves and people like us rather than blaming or pointing the finger at others. As someone who lived for a year in Richmond I am amazed at what is being achieved.

A must read for anyone interested in learning more about community development and how best to foster positive change through intelligent dialogue. We can all learn a great deal and draw a tremendous amount of inspiration from the lessons to be learned from this book. Should be required reading for all community leaders. I can only hope that my city would look to Richmond's growth and begin to implement similar change in my community.
