Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Crossing the Bridge: The Missing Link in the Dialogue About Difference uses the personal story of Carrie Gibson, who grew up with extraordinary economic privilege (kindergarten at the White House with the Kennedys) and skin color privilege, as well as the stories of many of the people she portrays in a one-woman play who are different from her in race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, and size, to introduce the technique of imagining how it feels to another person. Ms. Gibson believes that imagining how it feels to be these people she interviewed, is the missing piece in the dialogue about difference between individuals, in corporations and in politics. Her experiences using the play to teach the tool in businesses and schools throughout the country also provides vivid examples of the power of using the tool in conversation. The intended readers of the book are students, teachers, business professionals, managers, employees, and people in relationships. The book includes exercises for people to explore imagination as it applies to prejudice and privilege.
