PRAISE FOR IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS
"Socially penetrating. . . . [This] should be put in every schoolchild's hand as soon as the youngster can understand it."-The Boston Globe
"A lighter discourse on the ultra-serious matter of race in America . . . A sounding board for blacks and whites concerned with bridging the racial divide."-Newsday
"The kind of reading that will make some black folks chuckle . . . A promising sort of harmony that's especially impressive."-The African Sun Times
"Sassy and informative, It's the Little Things lets blacks and whites walk a mile in each others' shoes."-The Christian Science Monitor

From the Back Cover

"The kind of reading that will make some black folks chuckle and nod their heads in appreciation." -African Sun Times

Based on personal experiences as well as those of focus groups across the country, Lena Williams does for race what Deborah Tannen did for gender. Although we no longer live in a legally segregated society, the division between blacks and whites never seems to go away. We work together, go to school together, and live near each other, but beneath it all there is a level of misunderstanding that breeds mistrust and a level of miscommunication that generates anger. Frank, funny, and smart, It's the Little Things takes a candid approach to race relations. Finally, we have a book that traverses the color lines to help us understand, and eliminate, the alarmingly common interactions that anger, annoy, and divide the races.
