Pressestimmen

"This provocative work excels at challenging readers to think about and hopefully better understand people on the other side of the color line. This is a must-read for students and teachers with a scholarly interest in race relations. Even for casual readers, "Whispers supplies a starting point for discussion."--"School Library Journal
