Review: Demystifying Diversity by Daralyse Lyons

I really enjoyed how this book looked at diversity through a broad lens. Many books that discuss diversity chose a specific group to discuss (e.g., minorities, immigrants, LGBTQ2S+, disabilities, etc.). Those books have their purpose, but by only looking at one aspect of the diverse world we live in, we can’t view the entirety of our world.

The author shares her story about being a biracial individual, and by doing so, I felt a connection with her and trusted that what she shared came from a place of compassion. She didn’t pretend to understand what everyone was feeling but still managed to give voice to the other diversities by sharing interviews with other individuals. These interviews were an amazing way to explain and share the other diversities that exist in our world.

This is an excellent read that we all need to make the time for.
