Racelighting: When Good Intentions Fall Short explores racelighting - what it is, how it’s used, when good intentions mask it, and how it impedes bridge building between diverse people groups. Racelighting: When Good Intentions Fall Short is perfect for anyone looking to further develop their ability to engage in truth-telling, healing and justice work, whether an ally or someone from a racialized people group.
