Author and Diversity Trainer Pronounces Humanity’s Racial Bottom Lineby GDN Shared Post August 4, 2014
Pasadena, CA — In RACE: My Story & Humanity’s Bottom Line, respected trainer, keynote speaker and attorney Lauren Joichin Nile describes her personal experiences with racism, the source and beginning of biological race among human beings, the biological oneness of humanity, many tragedies of our racial past, the reality of our racial present and what the human species needs to do to move into a future beyond racism, of empathy and compassion. “I would love the book to open as many minds and soften as many hearts as is humanly possible for the heightened consciousness and ultimate evolution beyond racism, of the entire human species,” Nile said.
Racism has affected every stage of the author’s life. Nile experienced segregation during her childhood in New Orleans, before the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and as an adult, she has been the recipient of many racial indignities. Her stories and those of others are detailed in the book.
“All of my experiences as an African American have inspired me to write this book, those of growing up under segregation as a child, the lessons of love and understanding which the African American adults in my life taught me during that time, experiencing the ways in which the Civil Rights Act of 1964 radically changed the lives of African Americans both emotionally and practically, my experiences of racism as an adult, the profound lessons I have learned as a diversity trainer, and my deep friendships with my European American friends who are conscious, compassionate and true allies,” Nile commented.
In RACE: My Story & Humanity’s Bottom Line, Nile offers concrete suggestions for how humanity can indeed take our critical next step beyond racism.
“RACE, which is both electrified by Nile’s personal revelations and bolstered by its careful historicity, stands to make important contributions to extant conversations about race in America.”
