As a studio and a community, we aim to be an inclusive and inviting space to all but also know we have rested on our privilege and can definitely do more to actively breakdown barriers, confront culturally appropriative behaviour and use our platform to promote, support and champion people of colour.
This free online book club is open to anyone who has read Me and White Supremacy by Layla F Saad to come together as a community to discuss, share and reflect on how we can become more active in our anti-racism.
You can purchase the book online here.
About the Author
Layla F. Saad is a globally respected writer, speaker and podcast host on the topics of race, identity, leadership, personal transformation and social change.
As an East African, Arab, British, Black, Muslim woman who was born and grew up in the West, and lives in Middle East, Layla has always sat at a unique intersection of identities from which she is able to draw rich and intriguing perspectives. Layla's work is driven by her powerful desire to become a good ancestor; to live and work in ways that leave a legacy of healing and liberation for those who will come after she is gone.
Me and White Supremacy is Layla's debut book, and was initially offered for free in an Instagram challenge under the same name and then as a free digital workbook (downloaded by 100,000 people in the space of six months) before becoming a traditionally published book. Me and White Supremacy debuted on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists.
