Publisher's Summary

This celebration of black resistance, from protests to art to sermons to joy, offers a blueprint for the fight for freedom and justice - and ideas for how each of us can contribute

Many of us are facing unprecedented attacks on our democracy, our privacy, and our hard-won civil rights. If you're black in the US, this is not new. As Colorlines editors Akiba Solomon and Kenrya Rankin show, black Americans subvert and resist life-threatening forces as a matter of course. In this audiobook, leading organizers, artists, journalists, comedians, and filmmakers offer wisdom on how they fight white supremacy. It's a must-listen for anyone new to resistance work, and for the next generation of leaders building a better future.

Critic Reviews

"A timely and important work to support, educate, nourish, and sustain us all in resisting the lethal effects of white supremacy." (Kimberlé Crenshaw, Professor Law, Columbia Law School and University of California, Los Angeles)

"How We Fight White Supremacy is a brilliant, beautiful, and politically urgent text. This carefully curated collection masterfully explores the nuances, contours, and contradictions of a world in which Whiteness continues to define our social reality. Moving beyond rigid analysis or self-indulgent storytelling, this book offers us an impressive range of academic, political, and personal takes on White supremacy. More importantly, the book gives us permission to dream, think, organize, and struggle for a world outside of it." (Marc Lamont Hill, author of Nobody: Casualties of America's War on the Vulnerable from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond)

"How We Fight White Supremacy is the primer America needs right now! White supremacy is hardly new, but each generation needs to be reminded of the strategies of resistance and resilience that have made African American struggle so powerful and effective. Every American who cares about protecting the future of our country against the inhumanity of racist oppression should read this book today!" (Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times best-selling author of What Truth Sounds Like)
