ABOUT THE BOOK

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?

This is a question that many seemingly well intentioned White people ask people of color. Yet, it places the responsibility to educate on their peers, friends, colleagues, and even strangers, rather than themselves. If you’ve ever asked or been asked “What can I do to help combat racism?” then Dear White Women: Let’s Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism is the answer you’re looking for.

From the creators of the award winning podcast Dear White Women, this book breaks down the psychology and barriers to meaningful race discussions for White people, contextualizing racism throughout American history in short, targeted chapters. Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham bring their insights to the page with:

  • Personal narratives

  • Historical context

  • Practical tips

Dear White Women challenges readers to encounter the hard questions about race (and racism) in order to push the needle of change in a positive direction.
