“I wrote ‘10 Ways We Can Advance Social Justice: Without Destroying Each Other’ to provide options for people who want to engage around social justice issues, but don’t know quite how. It’s a primer designed to encourage people to get involved, even if the issues of most concern to them seem overwhelming and intractable. There are ways to make a meaningful difference in our own lives and the lives of others,” said Johnson. 

The recent book release is Johnson’s 11th book. His first book was “Black Wall Street: From Riot to Renaissance in Tulsa’s Historic Greenwood District.” 

He defines social justice as “the universal recognition of our shared humanity. Stated differently, social justice is an aspirational concept – a moving target – that would be reflected in a world without inequality and inequity.” 

“It’s been said that ‘the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice.’ That may well be true, but the arc doesn’t bend by itself. If it bends toward justice, then it does so because of the individual and collective agency of committed people. If the arc is to be bent, then we must bend it. We must work toward social justice,” said Johnson. 

In an interview with The Oklahoma Eagle, Johnson said he wants his book to have an impact on its readers. 

He said he believes “people will be inspired and renewed by the book – that readers will internalize the imperative of working toward social justice and engaging (or continuing to engage) with the issues most profound and compelling for them. Fundamentally, it’s about understanding our agency and reclaiming our power in service of social justice.”
