Celeste Headlee Presents Speaking of Race

Speaking of Race: Why Everyone Needs to Talk about Race and How to Do It

In this urgently needed guide, the PBS host, award-winning journalist, and author of We Need to Talk teaches us how to have productive conversations about race, offering insights, advice, and support.

A self-described “light-skinned Black Jew,” Celeste Headlee has been forced to speak about race—including having to defend or define her own—since childhood. In her career as a journalist for public media, she’s made it a priority to talk about race proactively. In Speaking of Race, Headlee draws from her experiences as a reporter and the latest research on bias, communication, and neuroscience to provide practical advice and insight for talking about race.  

Join Headlee for a conversation on Speaking of Race exclusively with Scrawl Books patrons on Monday, November 15 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm ET on Zoom. It is sure to be an unforgettable discussion on how to engage with those we disagree with to effect meaningful change in society.
