Book Talk | Dismantling White Supremacy Day 27


I began this book last week and would love to have discussions based on the prompts provided within the book. The book is set up so that after each day's reading, there are a handful of prompts to respond to. Feel free to respond to as many or as few as you like. I would love for this to be a discussion and a place where we can learn and grow together. Please be honest, because that is the only way anything will change.

Additionally, I have been compiling a list of books under the #BlackLivesMatter Reading List tab. I am usually adding books daily that I find, or are recommended by others. Please leave a comment on that page if you have titles to add. I hope you can find titles on this list that you will learn from as well.

Day Twenty-Seven Prompts

1. In what ways will your privilege need to change in order for you to consistently practice antiracism?

2. How will you need to change the way you take up space for and with BIPOC?

3. How will you need to show up differently for BIPOC?

4. What risks must you be willing to take? What sacrifices must you be willing to make?

5. What comforts must you be willing to lose?

6. In what ways will you need to take greater responsibility?

7. How will you need to decenter whiteness and the white gaze?

8. How will you need to lose privilege and safety in your friendships, workspaces, businesses, families, spiritual communities, and other white-centered spaces?

9. Are you willing to lose your white privilege after everything you've learned here?

Let's talk!
