BHM2020 - Women's Network November Book Club

Lectures Talks and Workshops, Performance
Tuesday 17th November 2020 (12:00-13:00)
white supremacy small

Throughout the month of October – Black History Month – Women’s Network members are invited to join us in working through the anti-racist text ‘Me and White Supremacy: How to Recognise Your Privilege, Combat Racism and Change the World’ by Layla Saad. The book is devised as a 28 day challenge to actively engage white readers in understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy. We will then be meeting virtually to discuss the book in November.

White supremacy is a violent system of oppression that harms Black, Indigenous and People of Colour, and if you are a person who holds white privilege, then you are complicit in upholding that harm, whether you realise it or not. And if you are a person who holds white privilege, the question you should be asking isn't whether or not this is true, but rather, what are you going to do about it? 

This book is available from the University of Birmingham library. Whether you are a Book Club veteran or this will be your first time, we look forward to seeing your faces virtually at our next Book Club!

All Staff welcome. Please contact the Women's Network to register for the event.
