              Whether it's the composition of a company's leadership team or identifying the candidates that are a 'good fit' with the organization, racial divisions play out as starkly in the workplace as they do in wider society. What can we do to eradicate bias and create a more diverse, in...clusive and equitable environment? Social psychologist Robert Livingston has made it his life's work to show people how to turn difficult conversations about race into productive instances of real change. With wit and clarity, The Conversation distills Livingston's decades of research and practice into a solution-oriented road map for anyone seeking to uproot entrenched biases in the workplace. Founded on extensive data and blending psychology, sociology, management and behavioral economics, Livingston's framework reveals that racism can be defeated with the right information, incentives, strategy, and implementation. With vivid storytelling, The Conversation explores the root causes of racism, ways to foster greater empathy and solidarity and offers tangible steps to progress towards racial equality. It is the essential tool for turning well-intentioned diversity statements into measurable, achievable outcomes.

              Americans, both black and white, marched off to war in 1918 to make the world safe for democracy. Unfortunately, the military was not immune from the racism of the times. Most often black soldiers were all but kept out of combat roles, or from becoming officers. Most blacks were ...given menial tasks, such as working in the kitchen, driving trucks, or constructing a barracks. The formation of the all-black 369th regiment from Harlem (New York City) sought to change this by getting black soldiers into combat. This is the story of the 369th, the first American soldiers on French soil who would spend more days in combat than any other unit. This is the story of the orphan soldiers, who were unwanted and unloved by the American military establishment, yet feared by German troops for their fierceness, and honored by the French nation for their courage in battle. It is also the story of one missing-in-action soldier, Ted Cole, who was intimately tied to the 369th's struggle to bring pride and glory to the black Harlem community. It is a story largely written out of our popular history, yet worth knowing.

              This is an irreverent survival guide for new teachers. The focus is on retelling mythic stories that display our humanity and enhance our empathic nature by giving free reign to the comedic side of our personality. In other words humor has a place in our lives and can be harnesse...d to help us survive the challenges of the secondary classroom. Humor can be the lever by which we find not only introspection, but also a philosophical approach to life as a teacher. This is not a here's what to do manual. Rather, it is more like a compass helping us to navigate our way through the school day. It is not a Pollyanna approach to education. It is an immensely serious effort to assist teachers in winning the hearts and minds of their students.

              On May 3, 1945 a swarm of Japanese suicide planes attacked an American ship, the USS Aaron Ward during the fierce struggle for Okinawa. The ship was all but destroyed and forty-two sailors died in the 52-minute battle. One of those killed was Laverne Schroeder, only two months be...fore his eighteenth birthday. After the war an anchor from the ship was placed in the military section of the Bluff City Cemetery in Illinois. There the anchor remains, a silent reminder of kamikaze pilots who wanted to die and young sailors who wanted to live. This is the story of the Aaron Ward's gallant fight, a brave young man, and a reporter's quest to honor the ship's legacy.

              In the last years of World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army launched 9,000 balloons bombs in a last ditch effort to attack the American mainland. Each balloon carried one high explosive bomb and a number of incendiaries. In theory, these weapons would cause forest fires on the ...West Coast, and, if used to carry biological agents, create panic. Traveling in the easterly jet stream many of the balloons did reach the United States and detonate as planned. Many, however, simply disappeared into the forests of the northwest, armed and dangerous. This is the story of one missing balloon bomb that set off a terrifying forest fire near the California-Oregon border, and of three men who were inexplicably linked by time and history to the to the resulting inferno. In a moment of truth, when the fire crowned and torched the land, and survival depended on tasting the wind, these men did.

              The North Atlantic, February 3, 1943. A German submarine, the U-223 torpedoes the USAT Dorchester. The ship sinks within a few minutes with the loss of over 700 lives. The official Naval Records indicate that four Army chaplains aboard the ship gave their lifejackets to frightene...d soldiers. Praying together the chaplains stayed on the sinking ship. They are known today as the Four Immortal Chaplains, a Catholic priest, a Jewish rabbi, and two Protestant ministers. There is evidence that a Fifth Chaplain, a Black sailor in the Coast Guard, also saved many lives that terrible night. His story, lost in history, should also be honored for his courage and sacrifice at a time when racism was endemic in the Navy.

              Travels with Ernie is a story about a newly retired newspaper reporter, Robert Samuels, who is involved in a violent car crash. Regaining consciousness, he finds himself in a strange room with peculiar properties. It is able to read his thoughts, as does the unfamiliar man before... him for whom time and place can be manipulated in compliance with Samuels's most hidden desires. The stranger, who refers to himself as a case manager, provides a guide, a long-dead journalist, Ernie Pyle, for the adventure awaiting Samuels. The story is a kaleidoscope of many themes all tied to Samuels's desire to find redemption and, if possible, salvation before he dies for the choices of inaction that he made in his life. Together, the three travel to unusual places, each locale a heartbeat in Samuels's ethical struggle to advocate for social justice, where he, by his own failure to act, compromised the moral life he wanted to live--Okinawa in the Pacific; Gila River Indian Reservation in the Southwest; Seligman, Arizona; Lone Pine, California; Bly, Oregon; and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Along the way, Samuels encounters forgotten figures in American history, each related to his redemptive struggle to live an ethical life--Ralph Lazo, Fred Korematsu, Iva Toguri, Charles W. David Jr., Captain Henry T. Waskow, Rabbi Alexander Goode, Angel Delgadillo, Ben Epstein, and Professor Peter Irons. All have a story to tell, which possibly will exonerate Samuels from his self-imposed sense of historical guilt. Samuels's religious faith, such as it is, will be challenged by events, past and present. In the end, he is trying to make sense out of the chaos of life and the absurdness of human affairs. As such, it is a story that embraces us all.

              Everyone knows that Jackie Robinson was the first black baseball player to end the unwritten code, which maintained the professional game as a 'white only sport at the major league level. That was back in 1947 when Robinson played for the Brooklyn Dodgers. But was Robinson the fi...rst black professional baseball player? Historical evidence suggests otherwise. In 1884, playing for the Toledo Mud Hens in the old American Association, Moses Fleetwood Walker became the first black major leaguer. As was true of Robinson, Walker endured the vicious prejudice of his day, not only from the fans and the media, but also from his own teammates. As with Robinson, he found a way to transcend the bigotry of his day by his play on the field, and also as an inventor, a legitimate theater owner, a newspaper owner and editor, and as the author of the most important political treaties on race relations by any professional athlete, black or white. And he did this against a courtroom backdrop where his life hung in the balance for murdering a white man in a desperate altercation. Unlike Robinson's career and later professional life, Walker's life story was essentially written out of our baseball lore, and almost totally lost in our history. But it is a neglected story worth noting in our continuous effort to offer all Americans an equal opportunity on the baseball paths of life.
