Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice

Paul Kivel

Cost: $14 | Shipping & Handling: $5

Available directly from Speak Out:


Uprooting Racism is a supportive how-to book designed to help white people act on the conviction that racism is wrong.

Uprooting Racism talks about racism without rhetoric, blame or guilt. It helps us understand the dynamics of racism in our society, institutions, and daily lives and it shares stories, suggestions, advice, exercises and approaches for working together to fight racism.

The book features timely discussions of affirmative action, immigration issues, institutional racism, humor, political correctness, and the meaning of whiteness. It includes specific consideration of Latino/a, Asian America, African America, Native American and Jewish issues.

This revised and expanded edition also explores how entrenched racism has been revealed in the new economy, voting rights, increased anti-Arab attacks, and health care policy.
