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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Her work is personal, practical, reflective, applicable, difficult, effective, and imperative.” Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“America needed this book yesterday. In fact, America has always needed this book…Don’t put it off, and don’t look away. It’s time.” Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“An effective tool for…addressing larger systems of racism and oppression.” Shelf Awareness (starred review)
“Smoothly narrating twenty-eight days of journaling prompts, Saad includes specific examples and reasons why listeners need to examine them. Listeners must be ready to engage with each topic by pausing to write out responses, not just passively listening. Saad includes personal and historical anecdotes to provide context—which is all the more powerful to hear from the author herself.” AudioFile
“An important book about taking ownership of racist behavior and making changes that are not easy, convenient, or comfortable…This groundbreaking book should be required reading.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Must be considered mandatory reading for anyone having to deal with the social injustice arising from racism and bigotry that.” Midwest Book Review
“This book is not for the oppressed or the marginalized but rather for those whose privilege, when left unchecked, has harmful consequences.” Booklist (starred review)
“An expanded, in-depth adaptation of her original workbook, which the author sees as a stepping stone for people who want to fight racism.” Publishers Weekly

“Layla not only engages readers effectively—she hands them the tools they need to change themselves so that they can better the lives of millions of people worldwide.” Rachel Cargle, activist, writer, and lecturer
“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.” Robin DiAngelo, author of White Fragility
“A rallying call, for those humble enough to answer, to stop and examine how dominant systems shape how white people see themselves, see others, and how they move through the world.” Latham Thomas, author of Own Your Glow
