Disrupting White Supremacy From Within | White People on What WE Need to Do (Harvey, Case & Gorsline)

$30.00

One of the spiritual gifts to America of tDisrupting White Supremacy From Within: White People on What WE Need to Do is hope for a better future where all races can enjoy one another as human beings. The contributors to Disrupting White Supremacy from Within, an all-white group of theologians, ethicists, teachers, ministers, and activists, propose that a fundamental part of the answer to racism lies in white peoples' unwillingness to admit, understand, and confront the power of white supremacy, white privilege, in their own lives. Through careful, thoughtful examination of the nature and workings of race, racism, and white supremacy, the contributors have provided a resource that will help white people do their own work of confronting and understanding the impact of white supremacy in the malformation of their own souls, acknowledging its devastating effects on people of color, and taking their own steps toward its abolishment.

Contributors include: Elizabeth Bounds, Sally Noland MacNichol, Laurel C. Schenider, Mab Segrest, Becky Thompson, Aana Marie Vigen, and Sharon D. Welch.
