Get the tools you need to get off the sidelines and onto the frontlines of allyship, combat racism while supporting Black women, and avoid common pitfalls white people fall into when they think about and discuss racism. Black women have always been the driving force behind real change in this country--especially when it comes to racial justice work. But they shouldn't have to do it alone. If you're ready to stop standing on the sidelines and become anti-racist instead of passively "not racist," then this book is what you need. You'll discover: - How to have difficult conversations about white supremacy, racism, and white privilege - How to listen to criticism without defensiveness - Why it's harmful to ignore race or claim to be colorblind - How to expand your racial justice circle by joining groups led by Black women and cultivating a group of like-minded allies Racism can only be defeated if white people educate themselves and actively engage in antiracism work, especially in their inner circles. With this book, you'll learn how to change from someone who defends and protects racism to someone who fights against it. And you'll become an example to others that true allies are made, not born.
