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 further resources.
In the 3rd floor Rare Book Room, join us to learn how 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.
Layla F Saad is the author of the ground-breaking Me And White Supremacy and the host of Good Ancestor Podcast. She is a globally sought speaker on the topics of race, spirituality, feminism and leadership. Layla’s work is driven by her powerful desire to become a ‘good ancestor;’ to live and work in ways that leave a legacy of healing and liberation for those who will come after she is gone.
