BOOKS

I continue to believe that Waking Up White is the starter book (that’s why I wrote it) because it offers a paradigm shift that allows white readers to contextualize the next hundreds of great books about racism to choose from. I suggest googling “antiracist booklists” and read summaries to get a feel for what interests you The more interested you are, the more you will stick with it and absorb the information. Happy learning!
