Book Review: The Grace of Silence by Michele Norris — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks, Joy, for capturing our Book Club and your thoughts on this book and this topic. It is an honor to be in this venue and Dismantling Racism Class with you. I am learning a lot from your reactions and responses to material and interactions in both groups.

  2. Thanks, Joy. Another thing I got from the book was what it was like to be the first black family in a neighborhood in Minneapolis and to be thrust into the responsibility of “model minority”. I’m looking forward to picking more books in September for our next year in the diversity book club.

  3. Ahhh I love Michele Martin. I have this book on my shelf but I haven’t read it yet because she signed it and I don’t want to get the book dirty–hahaha. She’s that awesome 😀 Glad you liked her book!

  4. The Grace of Silence is a good book to read, especially for those who are curious about family roots and secrets. If you’ve experienced anything similar to this, read the memoir and see how it makes you feel and connect it to your life experiences. You may be surprise to find how some secrets make you see things or even someone differently.
