The Wharf in Washington, DC will host a thought-provoking event on May 3rd featuring acclaimed author Tracie McMillan, who will discuss her new book "The White Bonus: Five Families and the Cash Value of Racism in America." McMillan's work takes a deep dive into the tangible financial benefits that white Americans have historically received due to systemic racism, using her own family's story as a starting point. She then expands her investigation to four other white families across the country, illuminating how racial privilege has translated into material advantage across class, time, and geography. This event promises to offer groundbreaking insights that build upon the important conversations sparked by books like "White Fragility" and "The Sum of Us." Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from co-presenter Dax-Devlon Ross, an acclaimed author, journalist, and social impact consultant whose work has tackled issues of race, equity, and justice. Ross's latest book, "Letters to My White Male Friends," has been praised as a powerful call to action. Together, McMillan and Ross will engage in a thought-provoking dialogue that challenges readers to reckon with the complex, often hidden, financial costs of racism in America. This free event is a must-attend for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of this critical issue and its far-reaching implications.
