Waking Up White

by Debby Irving
 

Waking Up White is the book I wish someone had handed me decades ago. My hope is that by sharing my sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, I offer a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As I unpack my own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, I reveal how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated my ill-conceived ideas about race. I also explain why and how I’ve changed the way I talk about racism, work in racially mixed groups, and understand the racial justice movement as a whole. Exercises at the end of each chapter prompt readers to explore their own racialized ideas. Waking Up White‘s personal narrative is designed to work well as a rapid read, a book group book, or support reading for courses exploring racial and cultural issues. 

Contact Susan Bertram at susan@sb-designs.net to get a link to a free book.

Also, available at your local bookstore, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, Audible, and libraries.

50% of profits go to charities addressing issues of racial inequity.

Waking Up White by Debby Irving. It’s on Monday, June 22, at 7:00 pm. If you have any questions, please contact:
