How we ended Racism Best Seller
“It’s the year 2050 . . . and racism has ended.” Could this really be our future? If so, what must happen now, in the early part of the 21st century, to cause this outcome? In How We Ended Racism, Justin Michael Williams and Shelly Tygielski reveal a path to creating this possibility―not just talking about it, studying it, or making small steps, but actually ending racism in one generation.
Williams and Tygielski have taught about and researched the conditions that allow for rapid, large-scale transformation. With scientifically-backed practices, they show us how to shift our perspective and enact lasting change in our families, workplaces, communities, and beyond―including techniques for inner healing, talking across divides, shadow work, forgiveness, calling one another forward instead of calling out, and more.
“Truly inclusive work must do more than be anti-racist,” say the authors. “We must learn to bridge any political or ideological divide―inviting liberals, conservatives, and everyone in between to stop fighting against each other, and instead come together to create a future worth fighting for.” Here is a book that dares to envision a world beyond diversity, equity, and inclusion while providing tools and action steps for a vision of humanity united―so that our descendants can look back at this era as the time when we decided to end racism once and for all.
“Justin Michael Williams and Shelly Tygielski are a dynamic duo, bringing together their unique perspectives as a Black man and white woman, respectively, to deliver an inspiring message of unity and hope that truly continues the legacy of my father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This book is a powerful call to action for all of us to come together across our differences and work towards the common goal of ending racism in our lifetimes. It is a thought-provoking and deeply insightful work that offers practical solutions for creating real change in our communities and beyond.

I am confident that this book will have a profound impact on the world. This book can renew your faith in The Dream. If you’re looking for a book that will inspire and motivate you to take action toward ending racism, look no further than “How We Ended Racism.” It is a must-read for anyone who cares about building a better future for all people, regardless of race, gender, or any other perceived difference. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

– Martin Luther King III
