Phyllis Unterschuetz is the co-author with her husband Gene of Longing: Stories of Racial Healing, a white couple’s personal account of a journey that pulled them out of their comfortable notions about race and into the lives of people of African descent, where they faced their greatest challenge – their own racial conditioning. She has been engaged in field research on the dynamics of race for the past 15 years, sharing her stories of healing for organizations around the country. Phyllis is also a founding member of the Race Story ReWrite Project, a movement to claim authorship of our collective race story and write a new ending that reflects our inherent nobility.
