New Release Spotlight: Idelette McVicker

So excited to announce this release from Idelette McVicker! This beautiful, heart-wrenching and hard-hitting book is a must-read for all who want to dismantle white supremacy.

Idelette says, “This book is a journey out of whiteness and reckoning with my place in the crime against humanity that was apartheid in South Africa. But we also know racism is not just a South African story. It was where I started, but I have also seen apartheid in so many places in our world, including in my own heart. This journey has taken 30+ years and—of course—it continues. Yes, this is a book to white people, but I hope it is for a different world. Whiteness has done so much harm across many centuries. Imagine us taking some time together, so we can do less harm.”

Lisa Sharon Harper writes in the Foreword, “It is a rare thing for me to stand with a book, explicitly about race and equity, that is written by a white person. Why? Because it is a rare thing to encounter a white person who has followed the lead of people of color into their own transformation so deeply that I trust the message coming from their white body. Idelette McVicker has done the work.”

Congratulations, Idelette, on your release day. This book is going to change hearts.
