Book Cover of Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad

What began as an Instagram challenge called #MeAndWhiteSupremacy, is now a best-selling book and free downloadable workbook. This is not a book you breeze through, even though it is only 210 small pages. No, if you are going to read this book and take it seriously, be prepared to do your homework and have a notebook handy. Saad uses a step-by-step reflection process to help people with white privilege examine their thoughts and behaviors, many of which are unknowingly racist. Saad’s process means doing the work to better understand terms like “white centering,” “white exceptionalism” and “ally cookies.” She encourages readers to keep a journal and write answers for tough questions like “What negative experiences has your white privilege protected you from throughout your life?”
