Wisdom in Living at ElderPride
We are so pleased to to offer this important work to our ElderPride Community. Please join us each Friday at 4:00 p.m. (PT) as we discuss our August book read: "Me and White Surpremacy."
Dear White People: How to Become a Good Ally.
ElderPride announces it’s August Book for study and contemplation. This August we will be reading: “Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor”
Dear White people…We need to do this: Dear LGBTQ+ people; we really need to do this.
Join us this August for a powerful book study. Author, Layla F. Saad (Narrator, Author), Blackstone Publishing (Publisher) has written this book based off her original workbook, Me and White Supremac. This offering 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.
When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #meandwhitesupremacy, she never predicted it would spread as widely as it did. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviors, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated in the challenge, and over 90,000 people downloaded the Me and White Supremacy Workbook.
The updated and expanded Me and White Supremacy takes the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources.
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that people are ready to do this work - let’s give it to them. The Book Study Group meets each Friday at 4:00 p.m. via Zoom.
