What can individual Americans do to help bridge the country's deep racial divide so we can finally realize Dr. King’s dream of a better America, with freedom, justice and opportunity for all. My latest book, The lessons of Ubuntu, provides a road map. The philosophy of Ubuntu (our common humanity), which was used by Nelson Mandela to save South Africa from a race war, is the key to changing hearts and empowering Americans of goodwill, regardless of race, religion,or politics, to become  agents for racial justice, healing and reconciliation. 
The lessons of Ubuntu is the perfect companion to my best-selling  memoir Kaffir Boy, which won a Christopher Award for inspiring hope despite its unflinching portrayal of racism and its devastating effects on black lives, and was a finalist for the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award. The book has been published in more than a dozen languages,  and is on the American Library Association's List of Outstanding Books for the College-Bound and Lifelong Learners. For all who are eager to understand how hatred is taught, and the power of its antidote, empathy, The Lessons of Ubuntu and Kaffir Boy are a must read.
