About this title
An NFL tight end for the New Orleans Saints and a widely read and followed commentator on social media, Watson has taken the Internet by storm with his remarkable insights about some of the most sensitive and charged topics of our day. Now, in Under Our Skin, Watson draws from his own life, his family legacy, and his role as a husband and father to sensitively and honestly examine both sides of the race debate and appeal to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing.
From the Back Cover: For so many people, the racial divide is an argument, a political position, a debate on TV.
But keeping our distance isn’t working.
It’s not an option anymore. This is about you and me. It’s about our neighbors, our children, and our world.
In this challenging look at race, bias, and justice, Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints and social-media commentator, speaks from his deepest heart to articulate what many of us think and feel. Part memoir and part social commentary, Under Our Skin offers a look at both sides of the race debate and appeals to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing. It’s a bold new path for us to follow as we come together to talk about the truths, myths, and realities of racial conflict.
Change starts here.
From the flap:
Let’s admit it. We all feel angry, offended, sad, hopeless, confused. But this is also true: We can be encouraged.
