Anti-Racism 4reals: Real Talk with Real Strategies in Real Time for Real Change (Paperback)
Available for Pre-Order Now
How do you start today on the road to being anti-racist? As our country faces a long-overdue reckoning with racism and white supremacy, book studies, workshops, and discussions crowd the landscape. But not all activities with the name anti-racism are actually anti-racist. In Anti-Racism 4REALS, anti-racism trainers Beckford and Ledder contend much of the current education leaves out action steps for dislodging racism in real time, and even worse, perpetuates racism, causing further harm to Black, Indigenous, Pacific-Islander, Asian, Latino/x (BIPAL) people. Using the concept of racial positionality as the entry point for engaging anti-racist work, this groundbreaking book offers concrete tools to confront racism and bring about REAL change in REAL time. Written by two ordained women - one Black Latina, one white - this straight-talk, practical workbook provides dozens of ways to be truly anti-racist, including scripts and other practices for interrupting and dismantling racism. A video discussion guide and Leaders Workbook (in the works) will help facilitate small group discussion and ACTION-NOW Learning Engagements.
