Me and White Supremacy

Me and White Supremacy

‘An indispensable resource for white people who want to challenge white supremacy but don’t know where to begin’ Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller WHITE FRAGILITY

‘It should be mandatory reading … Buy the book, do the work and then push more copies into the hands of everyone you know’ Emma Gannon

‘Confrontational and much-needed’ Stylist

‘She is no-joke changing the world and, for what it’s worth, the way I live my life.’
Anne Hathaway

___________

Me and White Supremacy teaches readers how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of colour, 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 over 90,000 people downloaded the Me and White Supremacy Workbook.

The updated and expanded 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 and further resources.
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that readers are ready to do this work – let’s give it to them.

Reviews

America needed this book yesterday. In fact, America has always needed this book. Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice. With keen intelligence and tireless patience, she is working to remove our collective cultural blindspots, and to help - at last - to change minds and transform society. I have the deepest respect for her. Buy this book for yourself, your family, your students. Don't put it off, and don't look away. It's time.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and City of Girls
Layla is an extremely powerful communicator. From the first page, you will be glued to this book. It should be mandatory reading. The message is urgent and the book is actionable and practical. Buy this book for yourself, do the work, and then push more copies it into the hands of everyone you know.
Emma Gannon, Sunday Times bestselling author
What Layla has created here is essential to anyone committed to doing the right thing regardless of how difficult it may feel. We can not dismantle what we are unwilling to acknowledge. And this book is perfect for anyone who wants to start to build a better society for all.
Candice Brathwaite
Discovering Layla's work was one of the most important, uncomfortable and pivotal moments in my life. It guided me back to my humanity.
