Indigo book cover
Beverly Jenkins - 2000-08-22 (first published in 1996)
Goodreads Rating
Indigo is a powerful historical fiction novel that follows Hester Wyatt, a former slave who has become a dedicated member of the Underground Railroad in Michigan. When she is tasked with hiding the injured and rude Galen Vachon, aka the "Black Daniel," she begins to question her vow to protect him. As the two work together to overcome obstacles and find love, they must also navigate traitors and slave catchers. This is a story of overcoming distrust and finding true freedom through love.

I think I appreciate this book even more on second reading than first. It’s a brilliant, beautiful little gem that takes a wealthy, jaded hero who starts working in the Underground Railroad as a lark and has him fall head over heels for the fantastic Hester.      source

Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
Robin Diangelo - 2018-06-26
Goodreads Rating
This book delves into the counterproductive reactions white people have in the face of challenges to their assumptions about race. The author, anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo, looks at the emotions and behaviors that make up "white fragility," which include anger, fear, guilt, argumentation, and silence. These reactions sustain racial inequality and hinder constructive cross-racial dialogue. DiAngelo offers an in-depth exploration of how white fragility develops and what can be done to overcome it.
