White Lives Matter Most: And Other Little White Lies

Foreword by: Sonia Sanchez

Paperback

Price: $14.95

Overview

Modern-day movements to end racism in the U.S. seem sadly doomed to fail. If more fundamental approaches to social change and more sober analysis of U.S. history are not considered, our efforts will lead to continued fragmentation–or worse. The essays in this book–written by lifelong anti-imperialist organizer, educator, and author Matt Meyer–reveal the successful strategies and methods of multigenerational and multitendency coalitions used in recent campaigns to free Puerto Rican and Black Panther political prisoners, confront neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, and many more.

Meyer’s reflections on the need for a new, intensified solidarity consciousness and accountability among white folks provide a provocative and urgent challenge. These essays–some coauthored by Black Lives Matter and Ferguson Truth Telling leaders Natalie Jeffers and David Ragland, Puerto Rican professor Ana López, Muslim interfaith activist Sahar Alsahlani, and Afro-Asian cultural icon Fred Ho–offer up-to-the-minute insights. Read on, and get ready for hope in the context of hard work.
