Grateful for stimulating conversations

I'm grateful for good friends. Tonight D and I and the girls spent a lovely evening at a dinner party at the home of some friends. Wonderful time. Conversation went from plans for Christmas to the topic of institutional racism. A seminary nearby is in the midst of controversy, and the complexity of what's going on is fascinating and so important. D has been reading a great book on difference in gender and race, and several of us have an intense interest in this subject. Stimulating dialogue that I think we all enjoyed.

I'd be interested in knowing the name of the book D is reading.

I'd also like the title of the book. I love imagining the conversations you all have!

The book is Privilege, Power and Difference by Allan G. Johnson. He has also written The Gender Knot.
