Book Club – Four Fridays Beginning April 23 from 3 – 4pm
Our next Book Club focuses on Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F Saad. What started as an Instagram challenge went viral and grew into the cultural world-wide movement: #MeandWhiteSupremacy.
In the book’s introduction, Saad beckons to us:
Welcome to the work. . . .I’m Layla, and for (at least!) the next twenty-eight days, I’m going to be guiding you on a journey to help you explore and unpack your relationship with white supremacy. This book is a one-of-a-kind personal antiracism tool structured to help people with white privilege understand and take ownership of their participation in the oppressive system of white supremacy. It is designed to help them take responsibility for dismantling the way that this system manifests, both within themselves and within their communities.
