From the Back Cover
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.
