Excellent. I had not heard of this until I saw it on a website for an upcoming book club. Glad I read it, and look forward to the upcoming discussion.
Started this today for a book club later this month.
I completed an earlier #SheSaid book for this months #Bookspin: an excellent book about racism directed at white people. Oluo dedicates each chapter to a different element of racism, directly and clearly analyzing it in the context of her own experience, naming the impact it has on people of colour, and describing some of what white people need to do, beyond reading, to end racism and white supremacy.
Oluo‘s delivery is forthright and factual, conversational and blunt. She does justice to her readers, especially her white readers of whom I am one, by not mincing words, by her willingness to explain, to share her personal experiences. I think I will find conversations where race comes up easier to engage in. Grateful for this new perspective and hopeful it bears fruit as I live my life.
