Chapin School Princeton Grad Winona Guo to Publish First Book

Tell Me Who You Are: Sharing Our Stories of Race, Culture, & Identity

Chapin Alum Winona Guo has co-authored a book (to be published this spring) which recounts her and her co-authors’s work on race and identity through their organization “Choose”.  Winona and Priya have spoken to Chapin faculty  and Winona has expressed how much attending Chapin meant to her.  We are so proud of Winona and all of the great work she has done to help our culture and society. 

From the publisher:

“In this deeply inspiring book, Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi 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, the two young women deferred 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. 

 

In Tell Me Who You Are, Guo and Vulchi reveal the lines that separate us based on race or other perceived differences and how telling our stories--and listening deeply to the stories of others--are the first and most crucial steps we can take towards negating racial inequity in our culture. Featuring interviews with over 150 Americans accompanied by their photographs, this intimate toolkit also offers a deep examination of the seeds of racism and strategies for effecting change.
