    Paperback Description:

    Do the work to dismantle your own prejudices in this guided workbook from New York Times best-selling author and thinker Roxane Gay.

    The system isn’t broken—it was built this way. But we can make a difference. In this powerful book full of bold, striking illustrations author and activist Dr. Roxane Gay encourages you to reflect on your understanding of the different systems of power that surround us every day, from the micro to the macro, and to understand how these systemsreproduce biases and prejudice in ourselves.

    Structured into an interactive journal with exercises for you to complete, Dr. Gay shows you how you can make changes to empower yourself and others to make changes in the world, asking thought-provoking questions that invite you to mindfully engage with, question, and unlearn your own biases and beliefs.

    Thinking points include:

    • What is power, and who gets to have it?
    • What affects a person’s power?
    • How do we move through the world? What can we do about it?
    • And how can we empower others?

    Step into your own personal power and plot a transformational path for tomorrow that’s fair for everyone.
