Me and White Supremecy by Layla Saad
Many of Stone Soup Café's staff and board members are participating in this fantastic book club, starting Sunday, September 26th. Together we will read (or re-read!) Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. Please join us in this learning journey!
What is “Me and White Supremacy”?
Me and White Supremacy is a life-changing book by Layla Saa on the topics of race, identity, leadership, personal transformation and social change.
What does doing “The Work” in Me and White Supremacy entail?
The book itself is split into twenty-eight chapters divided over the course of 28 days. Each chapter looks into one aspect of how white supremacy shows up in our everyday lives. Every chapter ends with a series of journal prompts for one to dig deeper into their own personal experience and complicity. Most chapters are less than 6 pages long, which means, depending on how deep you want to go with the journaling, each day’s “work” (reading + journaling) could take no longer than 20 minutes.
What is involved with this Accountability Group?
If you decide to join this group you are signing up to join a group of people who are dedicated to spending a month of their lives really and truly doing the work involved in Me and White Supremacy. You will receive a daily email with page readings and a link to complete the journaling work via an online survey.
Who Facilitates the Group?
We are really all facilitated by the brilliant, Black author Layla Saad. It’s her work and her words, we are just here to help you get it done. This accountability part of this group is facilitated by Lauren Worsham, a white woman who is also a Tony-nominated actress and singer who lives in LA with her husband and two children.
