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.

Cuts right to the heart of it
I already own this book and am now buying the audiobook so I can listen to Layla read her own powerful words. The work in this book cuts right the heart of the issue: our own beliefs and biases.
This book is very powerful. It has made me a better person and has provided me with an important foundation for beginning my anti-racism work. I am so grateful that I took the time to answer every question Layla F. Saad asks, and I plan on reading it again in a few months. If you have questions about racism, I highly recommend this!
This book is amazing - filled with essential universal truths for all human beings and addresses the pervasive issues of white supremacy and the resulting racism that we white people perpetuate and will continue to unless we take up active work to change ourselves and take action to change our local communities.
