Based off the original workbook, Me and White Supremacy teaches listeners 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 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.
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that people are ready to do this work – let’s give it to them.
Audible believes Black lives matter. We stand with those fighting for racial justice and we are committed to creating change – globally and locally in our New Jersey hometown. From June 9 to June 30, 2020, Audible will donate all of Audible’s profits from the US sales of this title and the others featured on our antiracism listening list to Newark Working Kitchens, up to a maximum donation of $250,000. Newark Working Kitchens brings meals to low-income seniors and families in one of the cities hardest hit by a pandemic that has seized on the large racial disparities in access to economic, health, and environmental justice, and it sustains jobs at restaurants that are the heart of our community. For more information, visit Newark Working Kitchens. We are also working to make antiracist titles, as well as antiracist stories for younger listeners, more broadly available to students for free.
