Podcasters and authors discuss new book "Real Friends Talk About Race"
Talking about race isn’t easy.
But talking with a friend about race and the difficult issues it encompasses is about far more than words – it’s about the health and trust of a relationship.

This week, Delaware Public Media’s Kyle McKinnon caught up with Mukantabana and Summerhill to learn more about their book and building healthy relationships through difficult but necessary conversations about race.
