Antiracist Book Club discusses Me and White Supremacy

ABOUT THE CLUB

You asked and we answered. We are thrilled to begin our Anitracist Book Club reading program. We'll discuss anti-racist and foundational literature. This is a safe, focused space in which to discuss the systematic structures of racism and the work we can do individually and community wide to dismantle them using the information from our texts and the lessons learned each session. Come as often or as rarely as you like, but whether or not you make this first session we recommend reading How to Be Anti-Racist as a starting place for discussion! This event is free but please RSVP via the ticket link below to get the link for the online conversation with owner Hannah Oliver Depp. 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey of how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #meandwhitesupremacy, she never predicted it would spread as widely as it did. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviors, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated in the challenge, and nearly 100,000 people downloaded the Me and White Supremacy Workbook.

Updated and expanded from the original workbook, Me and White Supremacy, takes the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources.
