Author and keynote speaker Debby Irving with Cheryl Reitan

It took Cheryl Reitan over a year and three copies of the book to finish Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race.

But UMD's Associate Director of UMD Marketing and Public Relations had finished the book - and was  captivated by it - by the time author Debby Irving gave the keynote address at UMD's Summit on Equity, Diversity and Multiculturalism this week on campus.
