Product description

Review

It's only on reading this book that I've realised that being an ally involves constantly showing up. And that it's deeds, not words, that count. -- Sophie Wilkinson * Grazia * We Stand With You - First Steps to Educating Yourself on Racism & Supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement * Tribe Magazine * How to support Black Lives Matter and anti-racist organisations if you can't protest * NME * Black Lives Matter: it's time to Understand, Educate and Speak Out * BN1 Magazine * Black Lives Matter: what is your outrage worth? * Culture Whisper * White people: get to work * Nouse * How to be an effective ally in the fight against racism * Huck Magazine * This is hard to hear, but if you are a white UK resident "shocked" by what happened to George Floyd you are part of the problem * Good Housekeeping * This is hard to hear, but if you are a white UK resident "shocked" by what happened to George Floyd you are part of the problem * Woman and Home * So you've posted a black square on Instagram. Now here are the best books, podcasts and films to help educate yourself about race and anti-racism * Glamour magazine * Finally, books are among the most potent agents of change in the world. The work of Layla F Saad and her book Me and White Supremacy helped me learn a lot about the institutional racism of the world we live in, to realise a lot about my own biases and false assumptions, and helped to open my eyes to the extra barriers people of colour face * The Bookseller * America needed this book yesterday. In fact, America has always needed this book. Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice. With keen intelligence and tireless patience, she is working to remove our collective cultural blindspots, and to help - at last - to change minds and transform society. I have the deepest respect for her. Buy this book for yourself, your family, your students. Don't put it off, and don't look away. It's time. * Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and City of Girls * 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' * She is no-joke changing the world and, for what it's worth, the way I live my life. * Anne Hathaway * 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 * 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 * 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 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' *

5.0 out of 5 stars Anti-racism work book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 May 2020
This book is not simply for reading, it's a 28 day work book and it's a very real and tangible way to become involved in anti-racism work. No more white people excusing ourselves as one of the good ones, no more thanking black, anti-racism teachers on instagram and then doing nothing ourselves, no more performative social media posts, no more white tears. We need to do the work and this book by Layla Saad is an excellent tool to begin that work. It's a book about you, not all those other white people, you. Your own (and my) complicity in white supremacy. If you have white privilege, this book is for you. Please do buy it for yourself and for others, please do the work that starts from within. When you read the foreword from Robin DiAngelo and feel your defences rising, this is exactly why you need to keep going.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 March 2020
Thank you dear Layla, Your book was recommended to me by Meggan Watterson and I wasnt sure if I was brave or honest enough to get past the title. Deeply grateful to you for these teachings and for being able to slowly work my way through the book and gradually absorb the enormity of your powerful wisdom. Its time to see through the eyes of our heart. Big respect and much love Jane.
