“Lies About Black People” powerfully examines the consequences of the politics of radicalized fear in America. Dr. Dibinga’s work is a must-read for anyone seeking to combat the stereotypes and racism that still persists against Black people to this day.”

–Roland S. MartinFounder of Black Star Network


“Lies About Black People” exposes the myths and stereotypes about how black people are viewed and judged, and it offers the realities and the raw truths that we all must face if we are to ever overcome racism and achieve inclusion, equity, and justice. I recommend it for all cultures, ethnicities, and nationalities, and I certainly plan to use it in my consulting practice as a roadmap for reconciliation and reckoning with the complexities of race.”

– Dr. Shirley Davis, Author of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for Dummies.
