UnCommon Bonds is a collection of essays written by women representing multiple identities; all uniquely addressing the impactful experiences of race, ethnicity and friendship in the context of the United States. The essays unapologetically explore the challenges of developing and maintaining cross-racial friendships between women. A primary goal for this book is to resist simplifying cross-racial friendships. Instinctively, the editors believe  that there is a unique joy and pain in these relationships that is rarely easy to summarize. The essays reflect narratives that challenge assumptions, disclose deep interpersonal struggles and celebrate the complex sisterhood between women, across racial lines. UnCommon Bonds is meant to provide a window into the often invisible struggles in cross-racial friendship.
