Warren shows how white activists come to find common cause with people of color when their core values are engaged, as they build relationships with people of color that lead to caring, and when they develop a vision of a racially just future that they understand to benefit everyone-themselves, other whites, and people of color. The first study of its kind, Fire in the Heart brings to light the perspectives of white people who are working day-to-day to build not a post-racial America but the foundations for a truly multiracial America rooted in a caring, human community with equity and justice at its core.

Fire in the Heart uncovers the dynamic processes through which some white Americans become activists for racial justice. The book reports powerful accounts of the development of racial awareness drawn from in-depth interviews with fifty white activists in the fields of community organizing, education, and criminal justice reform. Drawing extensively on the rich interview material, Mark Warren shows how white Americans can develop a commitment to racial justice, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because they embrace the cause as their own. Contrary to much contemporary thinking on racial issues focused on altruism or interests, Warren finds that cognitive and rational processes alone do little to move whites to action. Rather, the motivation to take and sustain action for racial justice is profoundly moral and relational. Warren shows how white activists come to find common cause with people of color when their core values are engaged, as they build relationships with people of color that lead to caring, and when they develop a vision of a racially just future that they understand to benefit everyone--themselves, other whites, and people of color. Warren also considers the complex dynamics and dilemmas white people face in working in multiracial organizations committed to systemic change in America's racial order, and provides a deeper understanding and appreciation of the role that white people can play in efforts to promote racial justice.The first study of its kind, Fire in the Heart brings to light the perspectives of white people who are working day-to-day to build not a post-racial America but the foundations for a truly multiracial America rooted in a caring, human community with equity and justice at its core.

Good Read

A very academic voice but has insightful observations about race in the U.S.

The readability of this book defies the complexity and depth of its argument regarding what it takes for whites to take social action to address issues of racial injustice. At each moment, I found myself following the nuances of Warren's argument as though they were pieces to an already solved puzzle. However, upon standing back, I realized that his arguments were the very pieces that are missing in social science today. Instead of focusing on white people who act for people of color in an altruistic way or with people of color only when they share the same interests, Warren shows how white people come to "authentically" support and embrace racial justice "as their own cause" through moral shock, relationship-building across racial lines, and action.

The book uses in-depth interviews with white racial justice activists to understand their own stories; however, it moves beyond an analysis of individual identity and awareness and shows how white people have started to refashion their own identities and moral concerns to make a "firm commitment to racial justice." In that way, the book moves beyond a focus on individual change and shows how white people are working across lines of difference to act towards structural change.

As someone who is studying how to do this type of work with privileged, predominately white students in schools, this book has illuminated the limitations of a purely cognitive approach and highlighted the importance of focusing on both moral values and action in multiracial settings. A useful book that crosses multiple venues and settings!

A thoroughly enjoyable book -- This book is a wonderful mix of solid scholarship and personal stories of activists. I was impressed by how clearly salient themes were drawn out and discussed, and the reflective conclusion section at the end of each chapter thoughtfully mulls over the content of the chapter while introducing the next section's central question. Highly recommended!
