'Devil in the Grove'
by Gilbert King

Not published in 2013, but Pulitzer Prize winners get a pass. If you've considered holding diversity training or seminars or bringing in a speaker--don't. Read this book instead. Ask your employees to read it. Shoot, pay your employees to read it. No matter how strong your current beliefs, the story of Thurgood Marshall's defense of four young black men falsely accused of raping a white woman will ensure you never think about people who are different from you--whether in terms of race, religion, beliefs, or simply because of how they look or act--the same way again. But be forewarned; the hatred and violence described is not for the faint of heart--which is another reason you should read it.
