"Buy this book for yourself, for your children's teachers, for all parents and grandparents of white children who you know. Raising White Kids is both an antidote to the racial ignorance and fear most white families unknowingly pass along to their young and a powerful way to call white adults into the process of racial awakening in the name of creating more just and functional communities for all." ~ Debby Irving, author Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race
"Jennifer Harvey's brilliant work and passion for racial justice comes alive on every page. Raising White Kids is a theory-rich, practical guide with wonderfully helpful examples that will equip parents to navigate today's racial challenges with confidence and grace. For the millions of mothers and fathers who are deeply invested in creating a better tomorrow in an increasingly multi-cultural America, Harvey's book couldn't be more helpful or more needed right now." ~ Diana Butler Bass, author of Grounded: Finding God in the World--A Spiritual Revolution
"Jennifer Harvey's Dear White Christians was a wakeup call to white congregations whose good intentions were often undermined by their own blind spots. With Raising White Kids, Harvey offers a much-needed roadmap for white parents who realize that racial injustice isn't just a problem for kids of color. This insightful and practical book is a must-read for white parents who want to raise surefooted, self-aware kids in an increasingly diverse America. There are few things more important to the future of our democracy." ~ Robert P. Jones, CEO, PRRI and author of The End of White Christian America.
"Required reading. This astounding book has a real shot of changing the conversation on race in America. If you're white and have a kid (or have ever been a kid), please read this book." ~ Saira Rao, Co-Founder, In This Together Media
