This book circle will follow a different format than the prior book read and will include time for personal reflection followed by a small group discussion using a shared leadership philosophy.
Layla F. Saad's book, Me and White Supremacy, originated from her 28-day #MeAndWhiteSupremacy Instagram writing challenge. From the book's synopsis, "using a step-by-step reflection process, she encouraged people with white privilege to examine their racist thoughts and behaviors...at this time in history, more than ever before, people are asking what they can do to help dismantle white supremacy and where to begin. Saad answers: 'Begin within. Begin with you and white supremacy.'"
Additionally, everyone is welcome, but BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) not expected to do the emotional labor or teaching.
