Layla F. Saad "Me and White Supremacy: Young Readers Edition"

Layla F Saad will discuss her new book, "Me and White Supremacy: Young Readers Edition" with conversation partner Cicely Lewis.

About the Book:

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change.

From the author of the New York Times bestselling book ME AND WHITE SUPREMACY comes the young readers edition that teaches readers how to explore and understand racism and white supremacy and how young readers can do their part to help change the world.

Me and White Supremacy has reached so many adults in their journeys to become better ancestors. This edition aims to make change with even younger members of our society. Covering topics such as white privilege, white fragility, tone policing, white silence and more, Layla Saad has developed a brilliant introduction and deep dive that is sure to become a standard in antiracist education.

Layla Saad meticulously updated the content for young readers to include:

  • Definitions and history of various topics covered
  • "Let's break it down" sections to help readers process complex topics
  • Questions at the end of each chapter to recap, reflect, and respond to the information covered
  • This is no longer a 28-day challenge so educators can use this content for longer or shorter amounts of time
  • Content is approachable and applicable for those with and without white privilege
  • Me and White Supremacy teaches teens and pre-teens how to dismantle the privilege within themselves and others so that they can stop themselves (and others) from inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

About Cicely Lewis:

Named the 2020 National Librarian of the Year by School Library Journal and Scholastic, a 2019 Library Journal Mover and Shaker and the 2019 National Teacher Award for Lifelong Readers by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and Penguin Random House (PRH) , Cicely Lewis is a school librarian with a passion for creating lovers of reading. In 2017, she started the Read Woke challenge in response to injustices in her community and the lack of diversity in young adult literature. Her students were required to read books that challenge the social norm and give voice to the silenced. Using this platform, she had inspired the nation to Read Woke with educators across the world joining in and sharing the movement with their students.  When she is not reading, you can find Cicely writing for her bi-monthly column in the School Library Journal where she shares her book recommendations. Her writing was recently featured in the 20th Anniversary Edition of Walter Dean Myers 145th Street Short Stories. She has partnered with Lerner Publishing to bring you a new book series, Issues in Action, which helps educate young people and provides ways for them to take action in their community.
