Intro to Reconciliation

Earlier this week I posted my list of “must-reads” for reconcilers.  I’ve so enjoyed seeing your recommendations on twitter, Facebook and the comment section here.  I’d like to keep the conversation going!

Here are the books I’m having my students read this year in my Introduction to Reconciliation class at SPU.  Along with a few other texts and articles, the students have to choose one of these books for a special project.  Tell me what you think!  What should I add for next time?




  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander
  • Picking Cotton by Ronald Cotton, Jennifer Thompson-Cannino & Erin Torneo
