A book I would recommend to an ignorant/racist/closed-minded person
Honestly, I’d be hesitant to go there. I think I’d be setting myself up for disappointment. I guess see yesterday about changing minds. I just don’t believe I could make a difference by way of a book. I think life experience is the only way to change people’s minds.
That being said, Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin. For those of you who do not know, this memoir takes place in 1959-60 and is about a white man who, through drugs and an ultraviolet lamp, changes his appearance to appear black. He then travels through the south and documents his experiences.
Sadly, I expect any close-minded person I give the book to will just shrug and say that was then, this is now.
