Subject: The book takes a bold step by exploring how family communication influences the perennial and controversial topic of race. This volume argues that the hope for managing America's troubles with race lies not only with communicating about race at public meetings, at school and in the media, but also, and more fundamentally, with families communicating constructively about race at home. Home is where lessons about the merits of diversity and how to navigate diverse environments can be taught and lived. Home is where society's youngest members can be taught how to improve their competency in communicating with an increasingly ethnically diverse world. And finally in the words of Toni Morrison (1998, p.9), home can and should be "a site clear of racist detritus; a place where race both matters and is rendered impotent". African-American and European-American family communication researchers come together in this co-edited volume to explore these issues.
