how does race, culture and ethnicity contribute to our understanding of self and ultimately our identity.

The literature is immense, but two excellent books are
McGoldrick, M. (Ed.). (1998). Re-visioning family therapy: Race, culture, and gender in clinical practice. New York: Guilford Press.
McGoldrick, M., Pearce, J. K., & Giordano, J. (Eds.). (1982). Ethnicity and family therapy. New York: Guilford. [2nd edition 1995] This book has chapters on many ethnic groups, and the two editions are quite diverse.
For my own "take" on this topic you can read Vande Kemp, H. (1991). The family, religion and identity: A reformed perspective. In H. Vande Kemp (Ed.), Family therapy: Christian perspectives (pp. 39-75). Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House.
