Book Launch for ‘Tell Me Who You Are: Sharing Our Stories of Race, Culture, and Identity’
June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The book launch for Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi’s “Tell Me Who You Are” will take place at 6 p.m. on June 5 at Labyrinth Books in Princeton. Come listen to the co-authors and Princeton natives tell their story and bring your questions. In the book, the two recount their experiences talking to people from all walks of life about race and identity on a cross-country tour of America. Spurred by the realization that they had nearly completed high school without hearing any substantive discussion about racism in school, they deferred their college admission for a year to collect first-person accounts of how racism plays out in this country every day — and often in unexpected ways.
After co-founding the non-profit CHOOSE as Princeton High School sophomores, Vulchi and Guo published a racial literacy textbook used in more than 40 states. Since then, the two have raised the money to take a year off from school and have traveled to all 50 states via car, train, propeller plane, boat, and foot — in order to interview hundreds of strangers about race and intersectionality. The book features many of these interviews. Winona and Priya are currently first-year students at Harvard and Princeton University.
