Praise for Dear White Women
"The conversation of race will never be comfortable until we make it comfortable by having the hard conversations. We are recreating the narratives to make a better future not just for ourselves but for our children." —Shanicia Boswell, Author and Founder of Black Moms Blog
"The invisibility of Native Americans from U.S. society must be a part of our racial reckoning, something Sara and Misasha have taken care to address in this thoughtful look at race in America." —Crystal Echo Hawk (Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma), Founder and Executive Director of IllumiNative
"This gentle but firm guide will appeal to readers interested in putting the concept of anti-racism into action." —Publishers Weekly
About Dear White Women
A practical and inclusive guide on how to be more anti-racist in your everyday life, within the small spheres of influence that you may not know you even possess.
From the creators of the award winning podcast Dear White Women, this book breaks down the psychology and barriers to meaningful race discussions for White people, contextualizing racism throughout American history in short, targeted chapters. Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham bring their insights to the page with concrete tips for addressing discrimination and microaggressions at home, in social groups, and elsewhere.
A 2021 Edelweiss Bookfest Editors’ Pick, Dear White Women challenges readers to encounter the hard questions about race (and racism) in order to push the needle of change in a positive direction. Blanchard and Suzuki Graham present contemporary advice rooted in cultural and historical insight, outlining the answers to questions so many of us have trouble answering ourselves.
