Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey, complete with journal prompts, to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations.

Updated and expanded from the original workbook (downloaded by nearly 100,000 people), this critical text helps to take the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources, giving the language to understand racism, and to dismantle biases.

This book will walk you step-by-step through the work of examining:

-Your own white privilege
-What allyship really means
-Anti-blackness, racial stereotypes, and cultural appropriation
-Changing the way that you view and respond to race
-How to continue the work to create social change

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. For readers of White Fragility, So You Want To Talk About Race, The New Jim Crow, How to Be an Anti-Racist and more who are ready to closely examine their own beliefs and biases and do the work it will take to create social change.

"Layla Saad 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." - Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller White Fragility
