A Night In With Layla Saad
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. Create the change the world needs by creating change within yourself.
Join globally respected antiracism educator Layla Saad to celebrate the publication of Me and White Supremacy: A Guided Journal, the official interactive companion to her Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.
As an East African, Arab, British, Black, Muslim woman who was born and grew up in the West, and lives in the Middle East, Layla has always sat at a unique intersection of identities from which she is able to draw rich and intriguing perspectives.
Layla wrote Me and White Supremacy, which published in January 2020, to encourage people who hold white privilege to examine their (often unconscious) racist thoughts and behaviours through a unique, 28-day reflection process. Layla created the guided journal, which includes the original journaling prompts from Me and White Supremacy with lots of space for note-taking, as the practice of journaling is one of the most powerful ways to create conscious awareness. It will serve as a transformational antiracism tool that you can come back to again and again.
Live in conversation with Sunday Times bestselling author, illustrator and activist Florence Given, Layla will discuss how what started out as an Instagram challenge became a world-renowned book, how her work is driven by her powerful desire to ‘become a good ancestor’, and the steps that each of us can take to begin, or continue, our lifelong anti-racism journeys: recognise your privilege, combat racism and change the world.
