___________

Me and White Supremacy shows 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 behaviours, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated, and over 90,000 people downloaded the book.

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 readers are ready to do this work - let's give it to them.

Industry Reviews
Layla Saad's ME AND WHITE SUPREMACY is an indispensable resource for white people who want to challenge white supremacy but don't know where to begin. She moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won't end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action. My fellow white people often tell me about the antiracism books they have read. My question is, "How will BIPOC know that you have read that book?" As Saad makes clear, if you have read and followed this book, BIPOC will know. - Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller 'White Fragility'

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

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

Discovering Layla's work was one of the most important, uncomfortable and pivotal moments in my life. It guided me back to my humanity. - Florence Given

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

For well-intentioned white people, it is near impossible to know where to begin unlearning our role in upholding white supremacy - because how can you address what you can't even see? White supremacy is the air we've breathed and the milk we've drunk since birth. Enter Layla Saad. Her work is personal, practical, reflective, applicable, difficult, effective, and imperative. For the millions of us begging to know where to begin - where to begin to counteract our ugly history, and where to stand during this historical moment of polarization and hate - Layla answers: Begin with me. Begin with you. Me And White Supremacy is an answer to a question every conscionable person is asking. - Glennon Doyle, author of #1 New York Times bestseller 'Love Warrior and founder of Together Rising'
