Earlier this month Chad Goller-Sojourner reached out to me about a new play he has written called "Riding in Cars With Black People and Other Newly Dangerous Acts." It's an autobiographical play that recounts "the story of a black boy, raised by white parents who 'ages out' of honorary white and suburban privilege." As soon as I heard the premise, I knew I wanted to hear more. Chad agreed to do an interview and we had such an interesting conversation. Chad grew up as the adopted child of a white couple in the 1970's.

In our interview, we talk about race, white privilege, and transracial adoption. Chad is thoughtful and hilarious, and has such a great perspective on things. I think it will be really insightful for adoptive parents, or anyone interested in racial identity.
