Do you want to be an anti-racist ally?

This punchy, pocket-sized guide shows you how, whether you’re using your voice for the first time, or are looking for ways to keep the momentum and make long lasting change.

Sophie Williams’ no-holds-barred posts about racism and Black Lives Matter on @officialmillennialblack have taken the online world by storm. Sharp, simple and insightful, they get to the heart of anti-racist principles and show us all how to truly be better allies.

Now, in her iconic Instagram style, this pocket-sized primer unpacks complex topics into their most important concepts, and provides a crucial starting block for every anti-racist ally.


This is a super important, bite-sized novel in how to become a better ally.

Sophie Williams wrote this book in the wake of many unjust murders of Black people, hoping that people who never considered their role in anti-racism would be prompted to take action in their lives.

I, as a white woman, always make a conscious effort to read books similar to this one because they are there to educate, make us feel uncomfortable and help us understand how we can do better. We need to challenge things that have been taught to us through white supremacy and question things along the way.

It isn't enough to just not be racist, we need to be active anti-racists. This book will help give you the tools to be a part of the change and be confident in being an ally.
