The new book, Me and White Supremacy (March 2020) by Layla F. Saad, provides a 28-day challenge of “radical truth telling [that]...teaches readers 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.” (Saad) A high school librarian and English teacher formed a group of two to work through the book’s daily exercises. We kept journals and met regularly to reflect. In this workshop we’ll share our process, reflections and answer questions for educators who want to learn more about the Me and White Supremacy 28-day challenge and how to implement this project to make your school a better place for all students, educators, and staff.
