Small keys can open large doors and my book may hold the small key that opens the large door to revive Dr. Martin Luther King’s crucial national conversation on race relations which he started but never continued after his assassination.
FAIRFAX, Va. (PRWEB) November 10, 2016
John Fuller, Ed.D., a nationwide diversity practitioner, has presented hundreds of cultural awareness sessions and facilitated race relations dialogues to thousands of participants in nearly every state. In “America’s Diversity Meltdown: Challenging Diversity Education and Its Epic Failure to Improve Race Relations” (published by Archway Publishing), Fuller offers readers a behind-the-scenes look at how the genesis of diversity education required “us versus them” themes that essentially created the “white elephant in the room” in every classroom and, how mostly repackaged curriculum exists but with the same theme today.
In his book, Fuller, a white male, offers an open discourse about white male privilege, communities of color, identities, affirmative action and divisive rhetoric. He reveals how over 30-plus years of mostly mandatory diversity training provided by businesses, communities and the federal government have failed to improve what he calls is the caldera of negative race relations that is not being discussed in classrooms. Fuller strives to replace the current approach with the mindset of “it is all about us” through meaningful and action-oriented dialogue. Fuller offers practical recommendations that would overhaul current failed diversity education and create new pathways to success that include his “Gateway to Race Relations World Café Dialogue.”
Fuller says, “Small keys can open large doors and my book may hold the small key that opens the large door to revive Dr. Martin Luther King’s crucial national conversation on race relations which he started but never continued after his assassination.”
