𝐒𝐲𝐧𝐨𝐩𝐬𝐒𝐬: Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, 𝑴𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π‘Ύπ’‰π’Šπ’•π’† π‘Ίπ’–π’‘π’“π’†π’Žπ’‚π’„π’š takes readers on a 28-day journey of how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

Equal parts excited, nervous, and intrigued summed up my feelings when I opened up the envelope from Booksparks containing this book. But I’m thrilled that it’s part of their winter reading challenge lineup because I believe we all have blindspots and I’m ready and willing to look for and examine my own.

This is 28 day challenge includes writing prompts, readings, and lots of self-reflection. I write so I’m going to blog about my experience and include some of the my answers to the writing prompts in those posts. It should be interesting.

This won’t be an every day post but I will share my full 28 days over a period of time.

If you plan on reading this book and would like to discuss as we go, let me know here or via email.

Thank you to Booksparks, Sourcebooks and Layla F. Saad for a gifted copy of this book.
