The Quilt of Humanity: A Metaphor for Healing and Reparation by Deborah Howard
In her book, Deb uses the metaphor of a quilt and, drawing on her own cultural background, employs the Jewish concept of tikkun olam – healing and repairing the world – to present a provocatively insightful way to look at the impact of racism, and other forms of injustice, on individuals, groups and society. She weaves her own story of injustice into the larger pattern to illustrate how all of our stories create the quilt of humanity and the reparation and healing required for bringing about equity and justice.
